The re:publica continues to grow, and with it our responsibility to put together a high-quality programme at each of our events. This is something we take very seriously. For rpAccra, the programme team includes members in Berlin, Accra, Kumasi and other cities in Africa.
The Berlin-based team ensures that re:publica’s core values and principles are carried through the project. It provides the framework for the Call for Participation.
The Africa-based team is comprised of one curator for each of our Tracks: Politics & Society, Science & Education, Business & Innovation, Media & Journalism and Arts & Culture (read more about them here: Tracks & Topics). The sub-curators are professionals, community leaders and speakers who know the re:publica and its guiding principles well. They gain insights into the re:publica programme, so as to evaluate the sessions submitted to their category and help ensure that diverse perspectives and voices are well represented.
Programme decisions are not made by individuals, but by a team! Our programme team is made up of people who work with the utmost care and integrity and we stand behind them.
