Elevating Tradition: The Expertise Continuum
Professionals Collaborate for The African Village UK Project

In the summer of 2023, a few of us family and friends set off on a 7-night Royal Caribbean cruise and stopped over to visit the Acropolis of Athens in Greece as part of our itinerary.

It was an unforgettable experience to walk through the remains of exceptional architecture dating back over 2,400 years: the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike, all testaments to the incredible creativity and resilience of architects Ictinus and Callicrates, and renowned sculptor Phidias.

Fast-forward to today’s fast-paced world where time is a hugely valuable commodity, we again have the privilege of witnessing – this time in real time, the coming together of a distinguished team of highly experienced professionals, all uniting to contribute their expertise in bringing The African Village Project in the UK to fruition.

It’s an incredible honour to be immersed in and be supported by a Team comprising of some of the very best of business strategists, architects, designers, planners, IT professionals, program managers, marketing communications experts, global entertainment professionals, financial engineers, legal consultants, and a wide range of other subject matter experts.

The firepower is awesome, a testament to the diversity of gifting and talent among people of African heritage. Also amazing is the enthusiasm and input from seasoned professionals who are not of African heritage.

What’s extraordinary about this initiative is that none of these professionals have requested for a fee, projecting the embodiment of selflessness, and demonstrating their unwavering commitment to the project’s transformative vision.

As we step fully into the next phase, which is the development of the Concept Masterplan for The African Village UK, we’ll begin to share more insights about the Team as it grows from strength to strength. What a privilege!
