Afripedia [af-ri-pee-dee-uh] is a new platform and forum for African creatives from Swedish production collective Stocktown. When we first reported on the project back in October, Afripedia had recently launched its first venture, a five-part mini documentary series that aired on Swedish Television (SVT Kunskapskanalen). Shot in Kenya, Ghana, Angola, Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire and South Africa, each episode dedicates itself to shedding light on work from a group of creatives within each of those countries. The team is currently producing one more episode in North Africa and has plans to release a full-length documentary in 2016. The first five episodes of the series will be available to watch online in 2015. Until then, the folks at Stocktown have given us a special behind-the-scenes look at Afripedia, which we've been rolling out all week.
So far we've seen photos from Angola, Senegal + Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, and Kenya. Today, in the final installment of our Afripedia Exclusives series, Stocktown shares a closer look at their time in South Africa, where the team linked with Okayafrica favorites like arcade-inspired streetwear label 2Bop and Limpop founders Gazelle and DJ Invizable in Cape Town, and heavy metal band Ree-Burth and colorful style collective The Smarteez in Soweto.
