ORA is a collaborative project between
Andani Africa & African Digital Heritage
Andani Africa was formed in 2016 out of a need to address the knowledge gap that exists in the understanding of the creative and cultural industries in Africa. Andani Africa’s purpose is premised on the belief that in order to grow CCI in Africa, sophisticated ways of data collection and analysis need to be developed.
Andani Africa is currently undertaking a number of projects that seek to engage practical strategies for African museums based on data-reliant insights. Our experience cuts across state and private museums, various countries in Southern Africa, and international art institutes.
African Digital Heritage is a non-profit organisation founded in Kenya in 2017 to encourage a more critical, holistic and knowledge-based approach to the design and implementation of digital solutions within African cultural heritage.
Working at the intersection of culture and technology it seeks to explore issues around digitisation, digital engagement, digital research and digital participation within African heritage. ADH has significant experience having worked with a variety of museums, archives and international organisations to deliver sustainable approaches to digital heritage and culture.
