AFRICAN URBANISM explores West African cities’ development trajectories, highlighting both urban challenges and opportunities through visually exciting and intellectually engaging perspectives. As an offline initiative, AFRICAN URBANISM engages communities in targeted public space improvements (learn more). AFRICAN URBANISM aims to serve as a local-global platform that pushes for an intricate, nuanced understanding of West Africa’s spaces.
AFRICAN URBANISM is created by Victoria Okoye, an urban planner and urban development researcher.
AFRICAN URBANISM is always open to article, photography, audio, and other creative content contributions related to urban exploration in African cities (not PR for projects, events, or conferences). Write to me at email@example.com to discuss.

I am an urban sociologist. I will be in Accra for 5 months to study street food vending on behalf of FAO.
I would like to collaborate at African Urbanism with my photos.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
