Youth First Festival

Youth is the age of selfhood, during which we build unique relationships, explore different identities, and shape our identities, in the course of our social relations. It is as social and cultural beings that we create African-ness in ourselves, even if we express this through our individual personalities and styles.

The Youth First Festival invites Africa’s next generations to explore and engage in cultural adventures and experiments, as they prepare to lead Africa forward into their vision of the future. Youth may be young, but they are also the oldest generation of humankind.
