The Afro-Bahia Festival is a week-long celebration of the culture of the state of Bahia in northern Brazil. The organizers will bring Bahian experts in music, tourism, dance, visual arts, cuisine, religion, and discussion of social issues to Washington D.C. Cultural ambassadors will present and share their expertise with audiences of all races and ages.
Events will occur at easily accessible times and locations and be of limited or zero cost in order to minimize barriers to accessing the rich cultural heritage offered. Our collaborators and partners will be key players in ensuring accessibility through their assistance with logistics, public outreach, and financial support.
