Centre d’art Waza

Waza, which means “imagine” in Swahili, is an art center in Lubumbashi that develops exhibitions, publications, and other cultural productions for the emergence of grassroots experimental artistic practices and the promotion of alternative ways of knowledge sharing and consciousness raising.
