After the succes of the first edition the Amazigh Festival is back! Besides an extensive program in festival centre De Roma, Amazigh organises together with Rataplan, Atlas, Borgerhout and the Werkhuys interesting activities around the Berber culture.
Antwerp cannot be seen without the Moroccan community. A big part of this group belongs to the Amazigh-community. They were the first inhabitants of Northern Africa and established the historical basis for its culture and identity. Young people within the Amazigh-community in Belgium look into the history of the parents and great parents. The Amazigh Festival is for them the opportunity to gain an insight in their own culture. The festival is also for outsiders a great way to learn more about the Berber culture.
