As part of ongoing discussions about the future of the Africa Centre, there’s an open meeting later this month at SOAS. It promises to be a heated debate; a quick look at the Save the Africa Campaign blog shows that although attempts have now been made by the trustees to engage in some kind of consultation, there is still a long way to go, and the future remains uncertain. To hear the latest and get involved, register your interest here and head down to the Brunei Gallery at 7pm on January 26th.
N.B for a bit of history and a nicely balanced assessment of the situation, take a look at this article from the Financial Times. It’s a bit out of date, but if you’re looking for background reading before heading down to the event, this is a good place to start.
January 26th, 19:00 – 21:00
Brunei Gallery, Room B102B
