conversations on facing violence
Come and learn about the ways in which African identity and culture has been used to resist, build communities and create alliances. with Olave Nduwanje
Amongst many things, the decolonial call to arms asks us to engage in open-ended and multi-dimensional investigations of identity and culture. We are called to investigate alternatives to the Western empire's supremacist worldviews, mono-culture and fixed psycho-social identities.
Olave invites the Beursschouwburg audience to join her in conversations with researchers and grassroots organisers that offer insight into the ways in which Africans - in Brussels and on the continent - continue to innovate, reformulate, revive and/or engage with tradition, identity and culture.
