Afri-cans is a platform working to celebrate, spread & uplift the graffiti, public art & culture in Africa and beyond.
Creating beautiful spaces with opportunities for street art officially limited in African cities, we aim to positively increase awareness and positive attitudes to this very accessible and collaborative art form.

This is a volunteer collaboration and we are looking for creatives interested in writing about contemporary art, fashion, music, and performance art.

We are happy to collaborate with people from all over the world, from different backgrounds not limited to the artistic field. If you like the idea to work with us please link a sample of your writing while submitting.

Thank you for your interest,

The Afri-cans Team.

THEME: “Listen, Think, Act”

As the world was adapting to a new normal, so was GLI. The 2020 virtual youth summit showed us that we don’t have to be in the same room to change the world collectively.
The 2020 participants translated listen.think.act into Art, forming this mural.
Participants were from Uganda, Rwanda, and USA.

Ugandan artist, Sparrow, led students through a workshop to brainstorm a design that embodies Listen. Think. Act. for an art mural that he and his team will bring to life in Kabale, Uganda.
