Last week MEF and its African membership arrived in Cape Town for the 20th Africa.com conference. Here, MEF CEO Rimma Perelmuter, reflects on a week of uniquely African energy and optimism.
On the Cape Town waterfront is the new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. This spectacular building – a converted grain silo overlooking the Atlantic – has been open just a few weeks. Inside, the gallery offers a showcase of the very best of contemporary African art. The project is a clear testament to the growing confidence of the African continent and its uniquely diverse and powerful voices.
