360 Afrika: The future of technology and design

Reclaiming Africa’s Voice Through Technology

The 360Afrika Forum is a partnership of creators, organizations, companies and industries that seeks to explore technological possibilities and apply this new knowledge for community impact.

Together with Black Rhino VR, NboStoryLab, Code for Africa, Enter Africa, Fuse Catalyst, and ONA stories, we are supporting not only innovation, but Afrikan innovation.

Society is on the cusp of a technological change

Our day to day interactions are a strong force for change. Society is at the cusp of technological change that will fundamentally alter how we work, play, and understand ourselves. The impact of this change is dependent on us. 360Afrika  brings together a diverse group of East Afrikan creatives and thinkers to begin this conversation.

The forum is a platform to explore how drones, gamification, design thinking, VR/AR, and machine learning can impact our industries and work. Learn from and connect with the most experienced practitioners in East Africa.

Register to join us for an inspiring afternoon on Saturday April 21st at Nairobi Garage to start creating a future that can serve us all.
