Kauma Brief Encounters

July 2020 - present

A panel discussion and networking event connecting international creatives working across the African Diaspora and The Continent.

Kauma Brief Encounters, also known as KBEs, are brief encounters arranged seasonally to bring together creatives in public physical spaces like restaurants, cafes, lounges, creative and/or digital spaces to exchange ideas, cultivate collaborations and deepen the artistic value. They are quick ‘home-away-from-home’ welcome breaks with like-minded people crossing borders in cities around the world. Share your travel plans or itinerary with us to schedule your stopover where one is happening.

Featured Kauma Arts Tribe Members include Kenneth Uphopho, Executive Director of Lagos Fringe (Nigeria), Samuel Tebandeke, Managing Director of Page Six Management Ltd (Kenya), Carolyn Lilly, Director of Feel the Rhythm Productions (USA/UK) and Sandra Golding (Jamaica/UK).
