The festival is conceived on the traditional framework of Africa in Self-conversation and will explore the theme ‘RHYTHMS OF IDENTITY’. Images are important, they form the rhythms of our identity and are present in all the symbolism and rituals that define who we are – music, dance, language, religion, governance, dressing, etc. iREP 2014 will interrogate the patterns of representation in Africa using the metaphor of music and rhythms which significantly stands us out from the rest of the World. 

The opening Keynote Address for the festival will be delivered by Emeka Mba, Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC). There will also be Interactive Panel Discussions, Incisive Paper Presentations, Training and Workshop, and robustopportunities for Networking.
