Waza Contemporary is an independent art initiative that seeks to promote artistic creation using mainly images and words—in the broadest sense. It aims to further an artistic perspective on the endogenous reflection of the historical and social environment of Lubumbashi and the region.

In response to the need for a regional and global platform of exchange, every two years artists and professionals from Africa and all over the world gather at Rencontres Picha, Biennale de Lubumbashi for exhibitions, interventions in public space, professional meetings, workshops and conferences.
