Event description

Description

Mbongui Square Festival is a interdisciplinary arts festival that promotes ethnic diversity and encourages the intersectionality of art forms. This event creates a bridge between local, national and international artists to enrich the local experience and reinforce the vision of a society that coalesces through the art of dance, music, spoken word poetry, and visual arts.

In the Kongo language of Central Africa, Mbongui is a place where the community gathers. Mbongui means togetherness and it upholds values of hospitality, free speech, justice, equity, and moral societal codes.
