The Addis Abeba Issue

Our first issue was all about Lagos, the most populous city in Africa. The issue showcased the  multiple facets of this loud and vivacious city, but there are still thousands of stories to be told. If you like to purchase a copy – you can do that here.

We’re continuing the journey and heading to our next city – Addis Abeba, a city nestled among mountains, an emblem of African Independence and modernity. For this issue, we are looking for contributors to help tell the story of this culturally rich city through various mediums and art forms.
