Democratic Republic of Congo

Culture is ubiquitous in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, promoting access and participation in culture to everyone is a central issue in this huge country, where the capital Kinshasa centralises the majority of artistic and cultural activities offer in Congo.

Two partners are part of the DRC programme: one, the Tarmac des Auteurs, is located in Kinshasa; the other, the Groupe Taccems, in Kisangani. Both work in the theater industry, the first to initiate a renewal of the writing and reading of contemporary texts written by Congolese authors; the second plays a unifying role in the Eastern region of Congo and the Great Lakes in order to make participation in culture accessible for all, for example through the organization of the NGOMA Festival and the « Pôle Culturel Est » project.
