I came across this event through a London Thought Works listing. I confess am not from the African diaspora, but I am an illustrator with an interest in anything to do with innovation and or sustainable development so thought your event looked interesting.
If you would ever welcome someone to document one of your events visually, then I would love to come along and do so out of interest rather than for a fee.
I just wanted to get in touch before booking a ticket and rocking up because I’m from Devon, not Djibouti and wanted to sound out this being appropriate for this event.
Sure , you are welcome to our events
