Developing pollinators of enduring change


African Research & Exchange Academy (AREA) engages innovators in the making of a better world. We promote audacity in individuals to rise and face challenges. To that end, we bring together talented people with the resolve to initiate, develop, and realize tangible solutions for a brighter tomorrow.

We offer residencies to regional and international scholars, leaders, artists, writers, and thinkers. We also provide educational and cultural opportunities to local and international high school students.
