On April 06, 2024, 50 voices from the Afrodiaspora in Baden-Württemberg and interested parties met at the Fair Trade trade fair for the Africa Forum Baden-Württemberg network meeting to talk about images of Africa as reflected in the generations.

Established and young voices from the Afrodiaspora shared their personal experiences and encounters with images of Africa and the stereotypical representation of the continent in Baden-Württemberg in living room discussions during the network meeting. 

Moderated by Faisal Osman (Black Community Foundation Stuttgart eV), there were two rounds of discussions:

In the first conversation, Grace Alele from SIMAMA – STAND UP eV and Eric Kamguia from Awoli eV exchanged their personal experiences with images of Africa. In the second round Naemi Mirene Makiadi from Afrokids International eV and the ReCollect Collective and Komlan Batema from KAMA MBOWOU eV talked about the diversity and complexity of the African continent. In both conversations, the speakers took the listeners on an intergenerational journey into the past, present and future.

Musically, the artist has Akeva! Malayika framed the event with their songs.

Thanks to all participants and supporters!

First Africa Forum Baden-Württemberg

On October 27, 2022, the first Africa Forum Baden-Württemberg will take place online via Zoom and in the Filderhalle.

Many people of African origin who live in Baden-Württemberg are actively committed to global responsibility and diverse partnerships both in Baden-Württemberg and in their countries of origin, as well as to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

The Africa Forum Baden-Württemberg wants to present the diversity, expertise and potential of Afro-diasporic civil society. This kick-off event is intended to lay the foundation for further Africa forums and thus promote regular exchange between African experts and Baden-Württemberg civil society and politics. With the aim of changing perceptions of the African continent, creating new images and making new forms of encounter possible. We cordially invite people of African descent and their organized groups, people and organizations who work with partners in Africa and everyone who is interested in the African continent!
