1000 African Voices

0 EPISODES | CHANNEL AFRICA |  Podcast
Kuungana, 1000 African Voices is more than just a podcast. It is a project aimed at breaking down the boundaries that divide us as a people. The boundaries that divide our beautiful continent of Africa.

Over the coming years we will do this by collecting and sharing stories from all parts of Africa. Stories from our sisters in Ghana, our brothers in Nigeria, our uncles in Namibia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. From Malawi to Cameroon, Ethiopia to Libya, Cairo to Harare we will connect with as many people as we can. Our aim is to record and publish 1000 African Voices. So we invite all fellow Africans on the continent and in the diaspora to be part of the Kuungana Africa Project.

Kuungana is a Swahili word for connect. Our task is to connect with the 1 billion inhabitants of our beautiful continent

A Doll's House

3 EPISODES | LIBRIVOX |  Book, ±50 min episode total time 2 hr 31 min
A Doll's House, written two years after The Pillars of Society, was the first of Ibsen's plays to create a sensation and is now perhaps his most famous play, and required reading in many secondary schools and universities. The play was highly controversial when first published, as it is sharply critical of 19th Century marriage norms. It follows the formula of well-made play up until the final act, when it breaks convention by ending with a discussion, not an unravelling. It is often called the first true feminist play, although Ibsen denied this. From Wikipedia

An Ideal Husband is an 1895 comedy by Oscar Wilde which revolves around blackmail and political corruption, and touches on the themes of public and private honor. The action is set in London, in “the present”, and takes place within a single day. “Sooner or later,” Wilde notes, “we shall all have to pay for what we do.” But he adds that, “No one should be entirely judged by their past.”

Antony and Cleopatra

Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written sometime between 1603 and 1607. It was first printed in the First Folio of 1623. The plot is based on Thomas North's translation of Plutarch's Life of Marcus Antonius and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Parthian War to Cleopatra's suicide. The major antagonist is Octavius Caesar, one of Antony's fellow triumviri and the future first emperor of Rome. The tragedy is a Roman play characterized by swift, panoramic shifts in geographical locations and in registers, alternating between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and the more pragmatic, austere Rome.

This show introduces the topic of ‘creative economy’ in Africa’s economic and development agenda. It explores the potential of the creative industry to provide new opportunities for developing countries, in particular African countries, to leapfrog into emerging high-growth areas of the world economy. The creative economy is a vital and growing engine of growth and employment in many countries of the world. According to UNESCO, the creative economy is one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the world economy - a highly transformative one in terms of income generation, job creation and export earnings.
The creative economy spans a variety of sectors such as advertising,
broadcasting, architecture, arts, crafts, design, fashion, gastronomy, music, publishing, theatre and technology.
