31st January 2014 - city writing | écritures urbaines
I care about cities and writing. My aim is to use the latter to make everyone care about the former. Along with a growing number of us, I have come to understand that cities are vast and intricate assemblages that create wealth, sow ideas and give hope to more people than ever before in human history. I also know that cities are dangerous and rapacious machines for the production and refinement of inequality. I want to write it all, and see it all, as the Africa I live in finally and rapidly urbanises.
