Festival sur le Niger

Fondation Festival sur le Niger aims to unite energies and bring together certain expertise for the development and improvement of the arts and culture professions in Mali and in Africa. It was born from the incredible cultural, social, economic and tourist momentum generated in recent years by the advent of the Festival sur le Niger in Ségou and the various initiatives linked to it.

Since 2005, the ‘Festival sur le Niger’ has been organized each year in Ségou, Mali. The Festival is a true multidisciplinary event, offering a program of music, dance, theater, art exhibitions, discussion forums, conferences and more. It’s a festival where contemporary culture exists alongside ancient tradition and international music stars play alongside fresh young talent.

Cinema Caravan

Cinema Caravan started with the concept of “Playing with the Earth”, and it has become a bridge between cultures and people through its journeys. Founded in 2010 by members who created the first Zushi Beach Film Festival in Zushi City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.  The group is formed by artists, musicians, painters, carpenters, cooks, and others from a variety of genres. While it works as a catalyst to revitalize the region through collaborations with local people and culture, it is also a collective that directs and creates spaces for art and film festivals.

Cinema Caravan is in a sense both a project and a collective of people with these various aspects and characters. They continue to create a cycle in which they bring the experiences and connections we have cultivated back to our own local communities, develop them, and then return them to our destinations.

The project started as a screening in the open air to create a place where people can feel with their five senses, prompted by various kinds of mediums, from video, food, music, art, to sports. It has evolved a medium to create expressions and shared experiences that go beyond the screen experience.

RRREC Fest

RRREC Festis an annual music festival which takes place since 2010. RRREC Fest showcases and unites various artist groups, communities, musicians and music organizers from many places. RRREC Fest is ruangrupa’s effort together with young artists to put forth fresh, innovative and inspiring ideas for multi-generational music-loving people and citizens of Jakarta from various backgrounds in general.

RRREC Fest is a statement on the importance of alternative spirit, not only imperative in the music world, but also in many facets of cultural practices. RRREC Fest is a place of meeting for music lovers while serving the function of creating new networks with musicians, bands, performers, independent music festival organizations, especially those coming from Asia and its surrounding region, enabling dialogue for new collaborative works in the future.
