African artists are creating sounds that are sweeping the globe, enticing the world to lend an ear to the continent. How can we tap into this powerful flow of music and art that is the lifeblood of many African cultures to inspire a movement to restore degraded lands? Africans are paying a heavy price for the climate crisis, but local communities and political leaders alike are building resilience through initiatives like AFR100 and many others, as will be showcased at GLF Africa 2022. This evening, we will bring together African creatives across film, music, and art to not only share their work but also foster a dialogue to remind us all to embrace both local traditions and contemporary innovations as we strive toward a resilient and equitable future.
