Contact & Colophon

The Africaserver is the platform for communication between the Netherlands and Africa on the Internet, subtitled "African Vibrancies". The focus is on art and culture, politics and society.
The site was launched in 1997 with the first virtual expositions. In 2006 the website was redesigned as an on-line magazine, up until 2014.

Currently the agenda with Africa-related events in the Netherlands is the key functionality of the website.

The extensive hyperlinks database, organized by country and by theme, contains over 1400 websites. The AfricaDirectory is a 'business directory' with African professionals and institutions in the Netherlands.
The Africaserver has also produced several on-line educational modules, for instance on Urban Culture and Slavery and the virtual exhibition 'Wit over Zwart over Wit' (White on Black on White), all in Dutch.
A spin-off from the Africaserver is the Virtual Museum for Contemporary African Art www.vmcaa.nl.
