Macondo was glorious yesterday. Listening to the stories and experiences of writers from Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Angola ...was a complex kind of joy. (Heartbreaking that I know more Germans than I do Angolans)

Our panel on Women in African Histories, examining how women writers have shaped (and are shaping) History through writing & activism, led by Tom Odhiambo with Dina Salústio and Novuyo Tshuma has just concluded.  João Viana is speaking to Judy Kibinge about decolonial cinema next

What is evident from the  #MacondoLitFest is how vitally important it is to have writing across African languages translated to facilitate continental access.   Catherine Ndung'o is speaking to Jethro Soutar & Moses Kilolo about the processes, challenges & rewards of translation.

Our final session of the day - and the festival!! Judy Kibinge speaks to filmmaker João Viana on African Cinema, its history, his creative processes and his film aesthetics. His films, 'The Battle of Tobato' & 'Madness', screening now, are a visual and thematic treat

“I think I suffer from the illness of national malaise…my country hurts me…" Reflections on why Africa is a 'Transparent City', how to restore its good health and how the #MacondoLitFest served to begin a pan-african healing process. http://ow.ly/xm5u30pEjxr

Many thanks to the creative spirits who made the  #MacondoLitFest a magical exchange.  Thank you for sharing your words and worlds.  Your powerful and generous imaginations allowed us to see ourselves and to delimit Africa from historical, geographical and linguistic boundaries.

"Writing is an art of coding history. A lot remains untold.." - Peter Kimani at the #MacondoLitFest Writing History workshop. Call to Writers: We need more Historical Fiction coming out of Africa. We have to write and reclaim our own stories & histories. http://ow.ly/bcSX30pEHpZ

Love and gratitude to everyone that showed up for the  #MacondoLitFest last  weekend, participated in workshops, sat for & engaged the panels, performances and guests, supported our vendors and infused that special Nairobi spirit into the festival.   #MacondoForever?
