The 2021 edition of the Africa Dialogue Series (ADS), the Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (OSAA)’s flagship event takes place between 3-31 May.

Theme: Cultural identity and ownership: reshaping mindsets anchored on AU theme of the year: Arts, Culture and Heritage: Levers for Building the Africa We Want.
