Our vision is to provide young artists with opportunities to enhance their knowledge, creativity capabilities, and deliberate on social and traditional constraints, to further their own artistic and social development nationally and internationally.

In response to the socio-political situation in Mali, Encounters DJEKA-MIRI consists of a series of activities: workshops, meetings, conferences and festivals, to show how the contemporary arts can play an important role in the form and implementation of a sustainable and social peace.
