Mbongui Square Festival promotes the intersectionality of art forms and encourages ethnic diversity.

In the Kongo language of Central Africa, Mbongui is a place where the community gathers. Mbongui means togetherness and it upholds values of hospitality, free speech, justice, equity, and moral societal codes. To learn more about the festival, visit: www.mbonguifest.org/
