The goal of our outreach activities is to promote the exchange between academia and the wider public. On the one hand, society should benefit from Africa-related research at the University. On the other hand, this exchange offers new perspectives and approaches for our academic work.
Our outreach activities include events for a wider public, mostly related to current issues, such as lectures, conferences, exhibitions or tours, that we organise as a convenor or in collaboration with our partner institutions.
An important part of our outreach activities is the continuing education programme.
In addition, the Afrika-Bulletin, which is published by the ZASB and the Afrika-Komitee Basel four times per year, addresses a wider readership.
Concerts and workshops
Music at the ZASB
Music is a central aspect of daily life in many African countries. At the Centre for African Studies Basel Music is not just an object of research but also an outreach activity offered in partnership with the bird's eye jazz club, the Jazzcampus and the Kaserne Basel.
