Talking Heads is a leading Pan-African knowledge sharing platform created to disrupt the common negative narratives about Africa. Through live events, audio casts and videos, Talking Heads brings the Continent’s thought leaders, social disruptors and change makers to the public to share their ideas and experiences, demanding we think differently about who and what it means to be African.
The Talking Heads podcasts and videos enable anyone, anywhere, to consider the ideas and work of some of the Africa’s most notable thinkers and leaders. The podcasts feature interviews while the videos articulate the innovations and inventions that are changing lives not only in Africa, but throughout the world.
Talking Heads live events happen throughout the year at unique venues in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Using the art of conversation these events create dialogues (and bridges) between some of Africa’s most inspiring thinkers and anyone eager to engage, disagree, or change their perspective. Through a mix of musical chairs and speed dating for the brain, guests move from table to table participating in four intimate 20-minute conversations with over 40 “talking heads”.
