Africa Nouveau is an annual, 3days/3nights arts and music festival congregating creators, curators, and fans of African cool from Africa and its diaspora. Our core values are innovation, creativity, collaboration, identity, and sustainability.
Africa Nouveau ascribes to the Afrobubblegum philosophy that states that African art can be fun, fierce, fantastical and frivolous, with no other intended aim but to increase joy.
Over the course of 3 days and nights, the festival seeks to produce hopeful and joyful ways of imagining Africans and their link to the worlds around them. The question we are interested in resolving is “if Africans and outer world beings re-connected, what could we learn and what could we create?”
