“Kilubukila” is an injonction in Kikongo which means “be wise”, this invitation is the spirit of our projects.
In the Kongo-Bantû society the community self-determines the social, political, economic organisation and leadership. Being wise invites individuals to be bold, to free their creativity and always act and produce within looser sets of rules, always reshaping and maintaining those rules at the same time.
We are a cultural project working on a collaboration and cultural network model to bring value to crafts, traditions and modernity and to build economic resilience to our partners and beneficiaries in the DRC.
Kilubukila is currently curating 2 projects: Mandombe Script applied on Kuba textiles and Luyeye Wild honey.
