Texaf Bilembo Cultural Centre

Texaf Bilembo Cultural Centre

Workshop for teachers
Large exhibition hall

In the framework of the Group’s efforts to promote societal development in the DRC, it made a 1,000 m2 building available to the Espace Texaf Bilembo. This centre, which is the only one of its kind in Kinshasa, is a voluntary initiative on the part of two people who are passionate about the Congo: Chantal Tombu and Alain Huart. On the one hand, the centre aims to showcase contemporary Congolese artists through temporary exhibitions and, on the other hand, to welcome school children aged 12 to 18 in thematic workshops to raise their awareness of their roots (‘Bilembo’ means ‘trace’ in Lingala), the country’s agricultural resources and the challenges of sustainable development. Although it has barely been established, the Espace Texaf Bilembo is already drawing plenty of attention.
