AFRICA BELLE CELEBRATES ITS 7th ANNIVERSARY!

Africa Belle is a celebration of French-speaking Africa through art, food, music, dance, fashion and fellowship.

This event promotes the positive images of Africa by showcasing its business and cultural contributions to the world. This is a great cross-cultural occasion that brings together people of different backgrounds to congregate and engage in one of Atlanta’s most unique cultural experiences.

This year’s theme is, “Entre Tradition et Modernité,” where we seek to spotlight modern African culture. Come discover the different facets of modern day francophone Africa and its offerings to the worlds of fashion, business, music, and art.

Standing exhibit by Gallery Miriam at the Alliance Française during the two weeks of programming.
