From the 14 to 18 February 2022 Animation South Africa (ASA) have been invited to actively participate in Africa-Europe Week online and taking place in Brussels. Designed to shape and strengthen partnerships between the two continents, the event promises five days of debates, conferences, and cultural events to engage in ideas and best practices.
Africa-Europe Week is hosted both online and in-person and will bring together people from across the EU and Africa to discuss the strategic priorities and future perspectives of a more robust and people-centred Africa-EU partnership, bringing added value and concrete benefits for all. The programme covers an extensive range of topics divided into three main streams: civil society and local authorities, youth and culture, with different sessions directly led by the stakeholders and beneficiaries of the partnership.
Animation SA will have a virtual booth at Africa-Europe Week which will be showcasing their programme: Road to Broadcast, is an incubator created to support black SMMEs in animation and gaming, and will feature the incubatees’ bibles, Z-Cards and showreels. Animation SA will also be marketing their business services. Industry members can register online to participate in the conference, various cultural events, film streaming and exhibitions as well as Animation SA’s virtual booth.
“This is an opportunity for the Animation and VFX industry in South Africa and Africa as a whole to engage with our counterparts in Europe. We look forward to showcasing the continent’s rich diversity of talent, while building strategic intercontinental partnerships in our industry,” said Isabelle Rorke, Deputy Chairperson of Animation SA (ASA) and head of ASA’s Social Impact and Human Capital Innovation.
Originally established in 2000, Africa-Europe Week takes place ahead of the 6th Africa Union – European Union Leaders Summit in Brussels. Global common challenges require the two continents to engage in a renewed series of political and policy dialogues with citizens at their centre. The improved cooperation envisioned by the Africa-Europe Week is set to bring benefits not only to Africa and Europe but to the planet as a whole
