Learn French. Live French. Love French.

About the Project

PROJECT
As we prepare for our largest cultural festival, Africa Belle in 2020, we aspire to host a series of African visual and performing artists in honor of our 10-year milestone celebration! Each year, we dedicate a full month to the celebration of African cultures and countries through our Africa Belle Festival. Through this series, we expand our reach in the metro-Atlanta area to display and feature the talents and contributions of the Francophone African world and beyond. Africa Belle truly brings together members of the community and provides the opportunity for a heightened sense of multicultural awareness. This festival promotes positive images ONLY of the African continent through film, music, fashion, food, art, and dance.

The goal is to keep these events at a minimal or zero-cost to the community in order to include as many demographics as possible. Your support allows us to meet this goal!
