AfricanCultureBlog : Montrant fièrement notre culture et communauté


Welcome to ‘@AfricanCultureBlog‘. Growing up and working within various community organisations, policy pushers and creative projects meant that I was told that Africans are part of the ‘hard to reach’ community here in the UK; not anymore. We’re all about   Africans in , #Paris & Beyond. Hard-to-find  Data on diverse African Communities is made Reachable, Relevant & Readable. By highlighting not only the achievements & dilemmas many African Students, Migrants and Entrepreneurs face upon arrival and whilst living in the UK; I work with (upon request) clients & organisations seeking greater access to the British-African populace by Mapping communitiescreatives & entrepreneurs in the UK adding market value and exposure to your service. A big shout out to Little Baobab, ABLOGUI, Okabol, ICI London et Destination Africa for your support!

One thought on “Welcome to AfricanCultureBlog

  1. Tholani,
    I love your blog. I need to explore how I can bring my thesis to the attention of groups in Africa who wish to benefit from it – but in a sense as i start to think about this, I am not sure what it is that will be of value – therefore maybe I need to understand if there is a particular University I could approach in Africa – I presented some years ago in Dakar and was well received so I suppose this is a logical starting point. Perhaps also it is important you can give some time to reading it (link provided below to share as you feel fit) so you can advise me in relation to moving forward.

    Kind regards and thanks for your time.
