About

Three days dedicated to Afropolitan art, creativity and thought, on the theme Black Artlantic, to be declined this year and next. The programming of the festival, and of the month of February, is inspired by British sociologist Paul Gilroy’s Black Atlantic concept, and honors 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.
