As was the case in Accra, Ghana (‘09) and Nairobi, Kenya (’10); MFA 2011 will present and spotlight the vibrant & endless creative individuals that have come to represent the spirit of ‘making’ throughout our dear continent.
According to Emeka Okafor; these innovators, artists and tinkerers will be exhibiting a fusion of the informal and formal; ideas, inventions, hacks and designs both low-tech & high-tech. From cuisine to machines, come see their re-imagining of products, exploration of novel materials and original solutions for some of the continent’s most important challenges and opportunities.
I’ll be attending all this important event focused on African inventions, ingenuity and ideas. While in Cairo, I look forward to meeting other social bloggers, “tech-preneurs” and developers to share ideas on various subjects and also present Future Challenges to them.
I can’t wait to experience the unique Northern African hospitality, flavor and culture at the event. If you’re attending MFA11; let’s connect and share ideas. Follow me on Twitter: @MacJordan and @MakerFaireAfrica for more updates.
