The Night of Ideas is taking on a new twist for this year 2021: it is becoming a real "week of ideas", from 28 January to 3 February, dedicated to the free circulation of knowledge, which will take place in four cities in Cameroon: Bandjoun, Douala, Yaoundé and Garoua.

In Douala, each day has its own space!

The French Institute of Cameroon opens the ball of this week on 28 January, with a screening of "Letters from the Continent", a conference on the notion of friendship in the digital age and a concert-event by the artist Majnun.

Former slaughterhouse converted into a cultural space, Somewhere invites you to discover, along the water, the traditional Sawa wrestling. Reggae concert, make-up artists, anamorphosis specialist and cultural promoters will be there on Friday 29th January.

In partnership with the MAM Foundation, the Souza Factory brings together inhabitants and students for a day combining environmental themes and decoloniality, in the continuity of the workshops of the Thought of Dakar on Saturday, January 30th.

On Sunday 31 January, The Forest will offer an evening "by the fire", where the public is invited to conversations, screenings, performances, an exhibition on new forms of solidarity and musical interludes.

On Monday 1 February, the Carré des Artistes opens the doors of its exhibition "Urbana Facta" and organises a conference on 20th century architecture.

On Tuesday, February 2, Espace Bolo takes over the concept of otherness: performance, lecture and discussion, slam declamation and poetry.
