    • Kofi I understand your point. You are right it is important to involve African voices when it comes to representing African issues. When it comes to design however, I don’t think there is an issue if something is European inspired to represent Africa. African Digital Art hopes to explore how Africa is graphically represented. What we hope to shed light on that there is no ONE representation and creatives express their view of the continent in so many different ways. We highlight and celebrate artwork and design that are inspired by our continent.

      • Well I agree with Kofi. I think there is a PROBLEM if you’re using European design to represent Africa. Isn’t that what has plagued us all this while? When will WE get to be the ones to speak and the ones to show using OUR means and OUR ideas and OUR point of view?
