The Royal African Society (RAS) was founded in 1901 to promote relations between the UK and Africa, which amongst other things it has famously done through its quarterly publication originally called ‘Journal of the African Society’ (now African Affairs). With Africa’s modern culture and technology economy becoming more mainstream in the 21st century, RAS has responded with its annual literature and film initiatives, namely Africa Writes and Film Africa respectively.
RAS sought De Charles to help create new messages that tie together its original and contemporary initiatives in the areas of politics, culture, film and business. Additionally, inline with the Royal African Society’s aim of promoting the continent, De Charles is helping find new synergies with startups and other entities that can better publicise the continent and increase the Society’s relevance in the 21st century.
