African Futures – Together on the Way (Program at RJM on 02.06.23)

The program within the framework of African Futures at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum and the FORUM Volkshochschule offers two days of information and entertainment on various sections and topics of “African Futures”: panel discussions, performances, readings, exhibitions, roundtables, consultations, dance performances and much more. The program primarily involves initiatives from the African communities in Cologne, which will present their views and issues under the motto “Together on the Way”.

Illuminated are the opportunities that arise from the complexity and creativity of modern Africa. The program also provides insights into the broad engagement of African diaspora groups. At booths, the associations and initiatives provide information about their work or offer their own products.

The atmosphere and cultural entertainment will be provided by Agwaan, Varinia Akua, Naiyango, Dessa Ganda, DJs Omz’B from Gambia and DJ Steven Tingling from Jamaica, among others.

Children can listen to African storytelling, attend workshops such as Black Hero:in, have their face painted, or learn about sustainability in the open workshop and make their own items such as bracelets or cards.
