Tuesday 30 June 2020 will mark 60 years of Congolese Independence and 40 years away from celebrating 100 years of independence. With this on the horizon, #CongoExcellence is promoting the #IndependenceChallenge2020 to celebrate, reflect and explore reality and imagination through time – past, present and future. As the Congolese community gears for Independence celebrations, #CongoExcellence wants to use the #IndependenceChallenge2020 as a way to creatively imagine and shape our realities.
Our #IndependenceChallenge2020 calls all Congolese to share a creative piece that speaks their truth to the question:
“What do 60 years of independence mean to you and how do you want it to look like in 2060?”
Are you a dancer, a sculptor, a poet-storyteller, a photographer, a musician, a painter, an actor, or someone who has been looking for an opportunity to creatively express yourself? Then this is for you.
#CongoExcellence will share the diverse creative voices on our website and online platforms, to reflect as a community on the importance and meaning of independence in the past and where we see ourselves as a people once we celebrate 100 years of independence. This will also inspire and encourage others to explore their creative abilities.
