The Creative Africa Nexus Weekend (CANEX WKND), a 3-day gathering of creatives from Africa and the Diaspora, has been scheduled for November 25–27, 2022, with some sessions holding on the 24th, ahead of the official opening.
The event, which will take place in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, will bring together music artists like Yemi Alade, investors, industry leaders, creative industry businesses, and government representatives. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with and learn from some of Africa’s and its diaspora’s leading voices in music, film, fashion, crafts, visual arts, literature, gaming, VR, and more.
The event, hosted by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), the African Union, and the Government of Côte d’Ivoire, serves as a prelude to the next Creative Africa Nexus (CANEX) Summit at IATF2023. This will be another important step in Afreximbank’s ongoing roll-out and implementation of its CANEX program, which is a multifaceted effort to support and grow Africa’s new creative sector.
In addition to showing off their fashion, art, and crafts in a dynamic marketplace, attendees can take advantage of a number of networking opportunities, meetings with potential business partners, panel discussions, in-depth break-out masterclasses, and other events.
Anyone from Africa or the diaspora who wants to be a part of the creative and cultural industry in Africa can attend this event. To register, click here. Registration is free but please note that you will need to cover the cost of your travel to Abidjan and accommodation.
Masterclasses are a major element of CANEX WKND, with intensive breakaway sessions commencing ahead of the official event opening on Friday 25 November, with a range of sessions starting on Thursday 24 November:
