I Know What You're Thinking

'I know what you're thinking' is an inquisitive take on socio-cultural aspects familiar to Afropolitans. Using storytelling to look at quiet curiosities - the kind we think about when waiting for a kettle to boil, waiting for the tub to fill, waiting briefly at the traffic lights, driving on auto-pilot or looking at a piece of art yourself in a gallery – we ponder on life. Through all this we look at correlations and the often elusive causations in our everyday existences.

Food Security

Food security is by far one of the biggest news makers within a drought ridden Africa. But what does the language surrounding it mean. Are we running out of food? Is there food but only a few have access to it?

Running Joburg

How does an African city run and most of all how does the language of policy affect city dwellers?We look at these questions through the lens of Johannesburg, a city that is rapidly urbanising and has people from all over the African continent laying their claim to it. On our journey we meet poet and long time Joburger, Richard ‘Quaz’ Roodt, who guides us through the forces at play in modern day Joburg. We also have husband and wife, Professor Loren Landau and Professor Caroline Wanjiku Kihato to speak about the language of incentives that should apply to an African City.
