What was the two-word definition of SAPS?

The Sapeurs or Societe des Ambianceurs et Personnes Elegantes can be described as an association of mostly men, in the Congo, who have developed a sense of style and elegance based on African principles translated into Western clothing.

Is the Global Africa Project going to be shown elsewhere? Europe? South Africa?

We are negotiating further venues in the United States.
