GIDA Journal Vol. III

GIDA Journal Vol. III explores the cultural landscape of Southern Africa through the works and words of thirty-two contributors from across the region.

In our newest issue, we sit down with Zimbabwean sculptor Terrence Musekiwa to discuss storytelling and materiality; feature a collaborative visual essay on archives and identity in Zambia by Banji Chona and Sana Ginwalla, delve into friendship and fashion with South African designers Lukhanyo Mdingi and Wanda Lephoto; and hold space with Jabulani Dhlamini and Thembinkosi Hlatshwayo to learn about the role of mentorship, trauma and accessibility in their photography. GIDA Journal Vol. III includes Lulama Wolf, Thero Makepe, Amilton Neves, Christian Cassiel, and Hélio Bruno Buite, among others.

“home-grown” in English from Hausa

Born out of necessity, GIDA is a print and digital platform, a marketplace, and a community where African creatives, writers and thinkers can connect, develop their practice, and share their work. GIDA is the tie that binds African local talent, heritage, stories and craftsmanship with the rest of the world. Incubating and harnessing the power of collaboration through creativity, GIDA births pivotal digital and physical monuments for the next generation of African creatives.
