About Africa Soft Power conference
Originally founded as a virtual event during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Africa Soft Power continues its theme of promoting May as ‘Africa month’, as the Africa Soft Power Project (ASP) at large seeks to establish the continent’s creative and knowledge industries on the world stage.
In the wake of COVID-19, Africa’s digital, creative and knowledge economies have emerged as resilient pathways to recovery. From sports and music, to technology, fashion, tourism and film, amongst others. The continent is leveraging opportunities and advances within these industries to build the strong recovery, facilitate youth participation, develop infrastructure and secure Africa’s place on the global stage by assembling a global gathering of visionaries, though leaders, influencers, and pioneers to converse around the theme of harnessing Africa’s Soft Power, not only for the continent, but the global diaspora community at large.
