Translation as Hospitality

8 August '23 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Join this assembly with Hamedine Kane and Stephane Bottero from the School of Mutants and explore the potential for translation as hospitality. The collective will share their ideas on tools for solidarity communication and their research on the Afrihili language.

Afrihili was created by Ghanaian historian K.A. Kumi Attobrah in the early 1970s as ‘a New International Language created from all the languages in Africa for all the peoples of Africa’.

The gathering will include conversations, readings, participatory activities around language and translation, Pan-African music with Chickie and screenings of extracts by renowned filmmakers Sembene Ousmane and Souleymane Cissé.
