About the festival
The NÈGÈS MAWON Feminist Festival is the first feminist festival in Haiti. It seeks to look at cultural and artistic production through a feminist but also to explore new ways of knowing and expand feminist thought and action through art in general. NÈGÈS MAWON seeks to transform art into language, to establish a dialogue with this powerful medium to create encounters between women’s demands and the creativity of our artists. It aims to use artistic expression as a reference tool for new horizons, new dynamics of feminist activism and protest in Haiti. Art to champion the cause of women and girls.
This festival also creates space for encounters, discussions, discoveries, sharing, creation and work around the themes addressed each year in within this powerful activist and cultural event.
