The much anticipated House of African Feminisms (HoAF) website is finally here! The official launch of the project took place in-person in Lagos, with attendees from Kigali, Johannesburg, Lusaka, and Abidjan joining remotely.
The House of African Feminisms (HoAF) is “a platform for feminist discourse, resource and enlightenment. The project aims at highlighting the works of various African feminist scholars, artists and thinkers around the world as well as providing a resource on African feminisms.”
The project is a response to the challenges of bringing visibility to African feminist ideas, movements, cultures, as well as artistic production and institutions. It was funded by Goethe Institute and coordinated by Chilufya Nchito.
We are excited about the many avenues through which HoAF will foster a common space where diverse African feminist communities and interests can come together to share ideas. We can certainly see how the project explores ideas while prioritizing African women’s lived experience and their right to tell their own stories.
The website is beautifully designed and user friendly. [See screen shots below]. It features a range of multimedia content such as essays, short films, and a podcast with episodes in several languages.
