The first Africa2020 Headquarters (HQ) roll out their programmes! 

Designed and set up by African teams in partnership with French institutions, the Headquarters are the beating heart of the Africa2020 Season. Set up in all four corners of mainland France and its overseas territories, these temporary pan-African cultural centers are places of conviviality, to meet and experiment. The Africa2020 HQs serve as forums to discuss the 23 challenges of the 21st century represented in the Season. The HQs have put together a fascinating multidisciplinary programme: visual arts, performing arts, cinema, talks, literature, gastronomy, music, design, video games… Immerse yourself in the spirit of the Africa2020 Season! 

Today – and despite the health situation –, 3 HQs have launched their programme: 

Paris Goutte d'Or HQ - from 3 February to 1st August 2021 

Nantes HQ - from 9 April to 30 June 2021 

Roubaix HQ - from 21 April to 25 July 2021
