The AFRICA CONNECT Group is a small, but growing, online Africa Playback group of practitioners with lived experience of Africa. We use playback as a tool for sharing our stories of Connection and Disconnection to Africa. The session will share insight into how and why this IPTN Regional Network Project continues to develop.
Andrea Sandoval (Vice-president of the IPTN Board) will also share about IPTN happenings. All PNA members are also IPTN members so this will be a great way to begin to connect with the international community!
