Stories from Africa, by Africans for Africans

None
The session would begin with a presentation of the work of an online story telling platform called Talents of Nairobi (@TalentsofNairobi on all Social Media Platforms). The work of Talents of Nairobi is shining a spotlight on authentic African stories with the hope of reclaiming the power of African stories. The scope of the presentation would set the pace for the discussion to be carried out for the rest of the session. The idea is to have a discussion on how to leverage the increased access to the internet all across the African continent to reclaim the power of telling African stories in their most authentic sense, free from the need to pander to a gaze or to fit pre-conveived notions.
