Scifest Africa turns 21!
In 2017, Scifest Africa invites you to come and celebrate our 21st anniversary in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape from 8-14 March.
Scifest Africa 2016 offered more than 56,000 visitors from Southern Africa a festival programme consisting of 65 exhibitions and 706 events, presented by 328 contributors from 76 organisations in South Africa and six other countries, and received media coverage to the value of ZAR 5,6 million from 1 January - 31 March 2016.
The theme for Scifest 2017 is "Tour de Science" with reference to the UN declared International Year for Sustainable Tourism for Development. The theme encourages contributors to embark on a journey that explores the milestones, accomplishments, mysteries, discoveries, and the historic and exciting wonders of their field of science.
Further focus might also include scientific facilities across the continent, the aspects of "edutourism" which is travel for the purpose of learning, or "scientific tourism" including focus on Space tourism and other hot topics.
