In 2010 I started the Remote Lecture Series to run out of the Digital Arts Division. The reason behind the series was because it was so much money and effort to bring technology arts people together on the continent and to get people from Europe and America out here. So now we just have massive Skype lecturers.
In addition to the live lecturers, we stream the whole thing live through the web and then upload the recordings for future referance.
The best place to find out more about them is the Remote Lectures blog.
For 2011 we are collaborating with African Digital Art to bring together African practitioners.
