The week-long Red Bull Amaphiko Academy came to a close with the Red Bull Amaphiko Festival, where – inside the Impact Hub – folks could participate in a series of talks and chat with some of the Academy participants…

…and a festival outside featuring special performances, yoga classes, vendors and projects on display, all ending with a dance party.
