Kuumba is the most accepting place I’ve been. As the Flemish-African cultural center in Brussels, Kuumba is a mix of tradition, modernity, languages, poetry, dance, events, and much more.

They organize themed months more or less every 3-4 months dedicated to one African country. At the beginning of one of the country-specific months, there is the big opening with music, food, speeches, and VIPs invited (but don’t worry everyone is welcome!). Check the website for details, there is no fixed calendar as it’s a small team of mostly volunteers organizing it so it depends on their availabilities. During this whole month, there is an extra focus on one African country with academics, musicians, movies, and more all shown at Kuumba. They usually don’t charge any fee for their activities, but you can always buy drinks at their bar (bring cash!). The month then ends with a big party featuring artists from the country in the spotlight. The best part is the amazing food that is served!

When they aren’t busy presenting one of the many African countries, Kuumba organizes poetry nights, language classes, awareness sessions, and game nights. In short – it’s a place for everyone to visit.
