Wine will be served from 17:45

Scifest Africa was started in Grahamstown, home of Rhode’s University, as a counterbalance to the National Arts Festival as a project of the Grahamstown Foundation. Still based in Grahamstown, Scifest is starting to plan for its twentieth birthday celebrations. Each year it has managed to grow and become more ambitious. Its popularity is based on high quality content and an in-depth appreciation of the audiences that attend.

This presentation will introduce the festival, give a short review of its history and context, before moving on to consider how it can be sustained into the future.

This talk is part of the Cambridge-Africa Programme series.
