Texaf Bilembo

TEXAF is the founder and head sponsor of Kinshasa’s main cultural center, TEXAF BILEMBO. Covering more than 1,000m², TEXAF BILEMO aims to draw attention to contemporary Congolese artists through temporary exhibitions and to hold workshops for 12-18-year-olds to teach them about their roots (Bilembo is a Lingala word that carries this connotation), the country’s agricultural resources and the challenges involved in sustainable development.

TEXAF BILEMBO initiated the book "SOS Planète Congo". This book is the basis for a series of workshops and training courses with the purpose of raising awareness of climate issues such as the forest, biodiversity, parks and protected areas, emblematic animals and green jobs in the DRC.
