The rapid urbanisation of African populations across the continent has disrupted not only traditional life but also notions of the ‘city’ inherited by colonial legacy. Emerging African mega-cities are often characterised by inequality, poverty and scarcity, as well as innovation, ingenuity and vibrancy.
Complimenting a global focus on city- making, civic rights and human-centric technology and systems, the SIX-DAC project seeks to explore these concept, from a uniquely African perspective.
