Three days dedicated to Afropolitan art, creativity and thought, on the theme Black Artlantic, which will also be held in 2019.
The programming of the festival, and February as a whole, is inspired by British sociologist Paul Gilroy’s Black Atlantic concept, and honours artists and intellectuals of African descent in Europe, Africa and the United States.
From Brussels to Los Angeles, by way of Abidjan, Kinshasa, and Addis, the festival becomes a crossroads of creations, meetings, exchanges and proposes some fifteen multidisciplinary events: concerts, debates, films, premières, talks, slams, hip-hop, handicrafts market, fashion, DJ-VJ party, African cuisine, bookstore, kids programmes, dance and singing workshops, exhibitions, and more.
