In the heart of Berlin, at be’kech anticafé, ISUSU Festival will launch as one of its kind featuring 45+ extraordinary artists, activists and changemakers hailing from Germany, Europe and the African continent, including Patrick Mpedzisi (Zimbabwe), Levinia Pienaar (South Africa), Thandiwe Majama (Botswana) and Wafaa Al Badry (Egypt).
‘ISUSU’ means ‘us’ in Shona . Taking place from 16 to 24 of August 2019 , this festival aims to celebrate the excellence of Pan-Africans* (diaspora) while shedding lights on an intersectional, sustainable and queer Africa (paying homage to the late author and activist Binyavanga Wainaina ).
Across the three themes of Afrofuturism, Pan-African Storytelling and Climate Justice, the festival will entertain nine events, including performances, film screening, an Afrovegan pop up brunch, panel discussions, live music and much more.
The festival is curated by Nora Chirikure and Alexandra Dorsica.
