At IFAA Global, we see the arts as a catalyst for change innovation and human advancement and thus welcome partnerships that enable this cause.
The first major project IFAA Global supported and co-produced was the 1st edition of Yango Biennale in Kinshasa Congo 2014. The support given by IFAA Global was meant to strengthen the Biennale’s vision.This cooperation was realised with the intention of initiating a new form of biennale that not only serves as a crucial media of contemporary art practice and the generation of public discourse. It is also intended to be a platform that enables the development of a local cultural industry - while at the same time functioning as a space of encounter that strengthens cross-cultural collaborations.Our hope is that the new form of biennale will respond to Congo’s social, cultural and environmental realities.
