Latest Stories - UWC AFRICA WEEK 2024

13 Jun, 2024

The Waterford Kamhlaba is excited to present UWC Africa Week 2024, taking place from 3rd - 10th July. The Opening Assembly will be addressed by WK alum Fanele Mashwama, and the keynote speaker is another WK alum, Lehlé Baldé-Cameron.

UWC Africa Week at WK is an annual, student-led event that has become the largest of its kind in Eswatini and one of the most significant on the African continent. The event provides a platform for students to explore Africa and reflect on the continent's challenges and opportunities. It also showcases the heritage of diverse cultures and promotes intercultural understanding through artistic expressions such as music, poetry, dance, and visual arts.

The week includes an opening assembly, panel forums, keynote speakers, interactive workshops, panel forum debates, diplomatic roundtables, a visual arts exhibition, and Africa Night—a night of live music performances, poetry, dance, and fashion from Africa. It brings together leaders from various sectors, including industry, economics, regional organizations, diplomacy, arts, academia, and civil society, along with students and staff.

To bring this mega event to life every year, ten student-led departments work collaboratively: Administration, Africa Talks, Africa Night, Assembly & Conference, Entertainment, Hospitality, Media & Marketing, Operations & Logistics, Panel Forums, and Workshops.
