We are excited to announce yet another edition of TVO TRIBE’s Anniversary, which is scheduled to hold from the 19-24 July. We are so delighted because this year’s edition promises to be queer, indigenous, and original.

Who We Are

TVO TRIBE is a team of dedicated and passionate Pan-African creatives, working towards building and establishing culturally aware and appreciative youth in Africa and in the diaspora. We are passionate individuals, tasked with the duty of pushing the best of Africa’s narratives and magnifying our Identity as African creatives.

Through our ever-growing community of Africanists, we are cultivating an idea that would span across African spheres and shape our world.

The TVOTRIBEVERSARY 2021 will place attention on top and emerging creatives from various niches, to showcase their art, tell defining stories, and share unforgettable experiences. This event would also shed light on defining moments of the past year 2020, with mentoring and education as its core element.

Our theme, “The African Creative: Carving Your Identity,” will focus on education and mentoring, with a view to instilling African creatives with the consciousness of who they are or who they should be.

Featured speakers include Tega Ethan, Dr. Segun Akinlolu, Hauwa Shaffi Nuhu, Victoria Olajide, Karabo Ohiine, Ayo Oyeku, Dayo Agarau, Wayne Samuel, Henneh Kweku, Johanna McCalmont, among others. The guest list is already packed, so do not miss out on these wonderful conversations.

Featured Activities

The Identity Series: A Documentary

This will feature a mix of legendary and evolving creatives. It will be an opportunity to create cohesion between the past and the present, while securing the future. Stories and creative pieces will be collected and collated from seasoned writers.

  Register for the Ongoing Jacana People’s Africa Month Festival of Writers

The intent is to shape a deep consciousness and connection with our audience, while attracting recognition and building a platform for these creatives. The documentary will debut on YouTube and IGTV and will focus on niche and form generation, how art has helped navigate identity waters and shaped African literature.

Opening Summit

This would feature notable speakers while touching on subjects close to the bane of Africanism and finding your identity as an African Creative.

Breakout Sessions

Participants will have an up-close and personal experience on such themes as: “Maneuvering Storytelling in Music,” “Dynamics of Self and Soul in Poetry,” and “Diversity and Inclusion in Children Storytelling.”
