Over the years the Africaserver has developed or was involved in a variety of projects
Below you see a overview of them with a short description.

The website and educational kit follow the travels of music and dance, meanwhile telling the story of the transatlantic slave trade. It takes us from the Netherlands via Angola to Brasil and back. DoReMixMax is a project by antropologist, musician and filmmaker Miranda van der Spek, produced by CineMusica and the Africaserver.

Samen door Mandela
On the day of Nelson Mandela's funeral we came together to celebrate and honour his live. Together with ZAM we were responsible for the website.

On-line collaboration with ZAM.

Arms into Art (I en II)
Virtual exhibition and catalogue for Arms into Art by artist collective Nucleo de Arte from Maputo, Mozambique. After the first virtual exhibition in 1999 the art works have travelled all over the world.

The Netherlands and the Transatlantic Slave Trade
This site consists of three sections. First 'The voyage of "Het Vergenoegen"'; experience the voyage of a slave ship by exploring it ships journal. Then 'The Gambia and the Slave Trade'; seven Gambian schoolchildren travel ten days on a boat in the Gambia River to find out, among other things, about the involvement of the African Kings in the slave trade. And last: 'Suriname/Curaçao' in which old inhabitants tell about the era of slavery. (in Dutch)

White on Black on White
Based on the collection 'Wit over Zwart' a virtual exhibition was built in which the image of Africa is explored. 'WoZoW' is used extensively in educational programs. (in Dutch)

Urban Culture, African rap and hiphop in the class room
To connect to the way children in higher education look at the world we made 'Urban Culture', a portal to African rap and hiphop. It contains translated lyrics and assignments. (in Dutch)

Virtual Museum of Contemporary African Art
After making numerous virtual exhibitions about African artists and artist collectives with the Africaserver a logical next step was the founding of the Virtual Museum for Contemporary African Art. Since it has become a stage on which African artists present themselves to the world. A number of them have found their way to an international audience.

Africanhiphop, hip hop from the motherland
Africanhiphop.com originated from the editorial staff of the Africaserver. In the meantime it has spawned into a large independant site with lots of information on African rap and African hiphop and with a large and faithfull audience.

Bongotoons, journalism to look at
The virtual exhibition Bongotoons shows work from eleven prominent Tanzanian cartoonists: more than 200 cartoons presented in an interface resembling the popular tabloid newspapers. A unique section of the site is a gallery with animated cartoons. Also featured: the history of cartoons and comics in Tanzania and biografies of the artists.

Virtuele exhibitions, a museum in the making
The Africaserver made several virtual exhibitions on African artists and artist collectives. From North, South, East and West Afrika. Paintings, statues, photography, 'internet-installations'. These were the predecessors of the VMCAA.

Friqueshun, the power of music and dance
The place on the Africaserver that served information on African music and dance. It was a continuation of the Newsletter of the Afrika Foundation Baobab and the Foundation 'de Afrika Centrale' both published (on paper) in the 90's. In the new Africaserver Magazine music and dance will again get their rightfull place. (archived project)

Housing Generator, houses for hope
The project 'The Housing Generator' was an initiative to renew the South African cities and their habitat. The project aimed at urbanisation and affordable housing. We produced an online presentation of the competition results and the winners. The opening of the exhibition displaying the winning designs in Johannesburg was at the same time the first presentation of the Africaserver to the world. (archived project)

Africa Television, tv vibrancies
Also known as Afracam. An initiative of the Evert Vermeer Foundation. Afracam was broadcast on local television in Amsterdam. We put it on the internet, then still an experimental excercise. (in Dutch, archived project)
