Boda Boda Lounge Project 2016 / Video Art Screening

The second biennial Boda Boda Lounge Project is a cross-continental video art project that practices creating an Africa without borders. Boda Boda Lounge is hosted by 15 arts organisations across the continent on the weekend of 18 – 20 November. The project invites African video artists, enthusiasts and radical dreamers to experience the audio visual musings of 30 artists from 11 different countries on the continent.
