“Space Making is the capacity to transform an empty place into space where people can share, communicate and eventually understand more about themselves and others. African cities are growing at a speed rate never experienced before by humanity, it is within these cities that the African Space Makers are making history. This VR series explores the emergence of a new indigenous creative class in search of fame and recognition.” – Africa space makers
