« When both Africa and the world change, and the prospects are evolving, the image of Africa and Africans must change as well ». Here is the first sentence of introduction to this project. How could you not feel close to this, when we know why we have created Visiterlafrique.com

Afripedia is not the African project of the website wikipedia. This is a documentary divided into five episodes that focuses on African creativity especially for young artists. Afripedia invites us in 5 countries of the continent ; Ghana, Angola, South Africa, Senegal and Kenya. Each episode lasts 28 minutes and features the new urban culture coming from African metropolises, in areas such as cinema, music, photography and even fashion and design. We can never say it enough, but there cannot be a strong nation without a strong culture.
