The modern women of Africa are intrepid, brilliant and living fascinating lives. Educated, well travelled, more confident and self actualized than her mother or grandmother, this woman is an interesting blend of African tradition, colonial heritage and the Africa she believes possible. Free, bold and fun, she lacks mentors and role models.
dadasphere is a platform for this woman to share her stories, lessons and ideas with her peers across the continent. The word ‘dada’ means sister in Swahili and dadasphere is a playful combination of dada and atmosphere. At each event, 5 dadas give 15 minute talks under a theme that is relevant within the dadasphere. The talks are recorded and published on our dadasphereTV YouTube channel, so that each dada is seen and heard.
dadasphere celebrates African women, our diversity and resilience in facing challenges head on and gives us an opportunity to empower and inspire our sisters through the age old African tradition of storytelling.
The intention is to bring together a pan-African community of pioneering women and their allies, that they may join forces in an explosion of discovery and ingenuity to bring about real, meaningful change on the continent.
