Africa Soft Power Summit will hold from May 23 to 27 in Kigali, Rwanda.
The signature event of the Africa Soft Power Group (ASP) offers the largest stage for the continent’s creative, knowledge, and digital industries. It brings together public and private sector organizations as well as trailblazing figures from the fields of law, finance, technology, sports, media, the arts, and entertainment, academia, philanthropy, politics, and more.
The five-day event is divided into three parts: the inaugural RAW Women’s Leadership Conference, the Creative and Innovative Industries Conference, and the Africa Soft Power gala and awards. It is advertised for the Kigali Serena Hotel.
“Over five days, three key events, and a variety of networking activities, we’ll see the spotlight shone on creative endeavor and its commercial viability, not only on the continent, but around the world,” said Nkiru Balonwu, the founder and creative director of Africa Soft Power.
“During a packed-out week, the creative and digital economies of tomorrow will meet with the financial and business powerhouses of today, together forming clear pathways to future economic success for our women, young people and the wider global community. “Introduction of the inaugural RAW Women’s Conference is a particularly welcome addition to this year’s proceedings, and we are confident that more broadly, the often still largely unheard African voice – and those who join us from around the world – can examine new solutions to some of the key public and private sector issues of the day.”
