On 15 September, The Flagey in Brussels, Belgium is hosting a revolutionary evening highlighting the extraordinary transformations happening in the heart of Africa. Ravaged by the scars of colonialism, corporate greed, extraction, and devastating warfare the women of Eastern Congo and their homeland have faced unimaginable violence. In the face of seemingly intractable conflict and systematic abuses, a city is flourishing and a farm is blossoming. Attendees will learn about The City of Joy and V-World farm, from the leaders and visionaries who dared to dream of a new Congolese story, one where women thrived.
