The I Am Afrika On My Sleeve exhibition is currently being held at the Henderson library from 28th May – 31st August.

The exhibition is part of a wider platform by the Founder and Creative Director, Makanaka Tuwe, to create new and positive narratives about and for African peoples showcased through fashion, art and digital media.

The exhibition is about celebrating the third culture voice as an alternative to mainstream representations about the African community. “The exhibition is about writing a story for us and creating our own narrative” Tuwe stated.
