SOBRE O MAPUTO FAST FORWARD
MFF was launched in 2016 as an open platform engaged in promoting creativity and innovation. Its main objective is to help Mozambican creators and innovators across all fields of activity (arts, culture, design, architecture, technology, etc.) to develop and present their projects, engage in fruitful trans-disciplinary debates and develop collaborations in order to establish an ecosystem that will allow them to expand their creative skills and to participate, through the exploration of networking opportunities, in the “global conversation” that is taking place within the “creative industries” sector.
