Welcome to the CTD Conference live blog!

The live blog covered the events of the CTD end conference and the festival N’djam s’enflamme en slam, who took place in N’Djamena between the 23rd and the 29th of October 2017. The two events happened simultaneously and were an extraordinary chance for an exchange between academia and art, fostering a rich debate on co-creation in research. Here you can find reports, opinions, galleries, interviews and much more on both the academic and the artistic programme.

The live blog was coordinated by Lucia Ragazzi (luciaragazzi.lr@gmail.com), with the collaboration of Sjoerd Sijsma (photos and videos) and Vera Bakker (photos).

The live blog was enriched by many collaborators: Rolland Albani from SAO magazine with articles on N’djam s’enflamme en slam; Catherina Wilson with blog posts from her personal blog Rumours on the Ubangui; Marie-Soleil Frère; Jean Eric Bitang, and the reporters on the panel discussions (Meike de Goede, Catherina Wilson, Inge Ligtvoet, Jonna Both, Inge Butter, Mirjam de Bruijn).
