MAWEAF Multimedia Arts Festival (Algeria Edition): An exciting showcase of the underground art scene of Africa’s largest country, Algeria, comes in full force to London with a spellbinding contemporary showcase of theatre, photography, design, workshops and feature films. Little known in the UK, and significantly under-represented across British cultural scenes, this programming will take on Algeria’s multi-faceted reality in which the participating artists have grown and developed their work. Themed around the “Africanity” of Algeria, the festival celebrates and explores the African dimension of Algeria’s identity, whilst also confronting the burning issues of rising xenophobia, racial controversies and the lack of ties south of the Sahara. The festival is all free to attend except for the evening concert which is ticketed. Taking place on 10 February, 2018 at Rich MIx, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
