In collaboration with Tastemakers Africa, Meeting of Minds is proud to partner on a historic virtual gathering of makers, doers, and leaders in Africa and the diaspora.
Join us THIS Sunday at 11 AM EDT | 4 PM GMT for The Thread | Conversations Beyond The Return Vol 4.
The Thread is a virtual conference bringing the culture together to plot our path beyond the year of return.
Covering everything from how the music industry is evolving with COVID-19, to spiritual health, to how investment capital is flowing (or not) and the black travel movement – The Thread brings together speakers from the continent and the diaspora to help us chart a plan of action together.
- LEARN about what’s happening on the continent right now
- DISCOVER innovations and movements shaping the exchange between the continent and the diaspora, and
- CONNECT with like-minded people from all over the world.
