Live music by Kay Slice

Organisation:FMS & FEPS

Location: Grote-Zaal

Available:503 places left

Finish off Africa Day dancing to the music of “hiphopkid with a Ghana soul” Kay Slice. There's no easy way to describe his sound. Kay effortlessly strings together different genres, such as hip-hop, afrobeat and soul – all of course packed with Ghanaian groove.

Film: Women Hold Up The Sky

Organisation:iAfrica Film Festival

Location: IJzaal

Available:76 places left

This film tells the story of how women activists affected by mining and other forms of large-scale extractives in South Africa, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are deeply engaged in resistance and an active struggle to take back control of their land, their rights, their bodies and their lives. Journeying between these three countries, this documentary reveals the experiences and activism of women in three African countries but tells a much bigger story of the ongoing exploitation of natural resources and marginalisation of poor communities, particularly women.
