In addition, as in previous editions, Casa África will have its own stand that will help contribute its main function that is none other than bringing Africa and Spain closer together. This year, you may visit our stand to leave a positive message about Africa and vote on the photos you most like that are participating in our 1st Africa Focus Photography Contest.

For the second consecutive year, Casa África will organise the 'African Culinary Corner', which is a space within WOMAD that is reserved for the flavours and aromas that arrive from the varied and rich African gastronomy, prepared by its protagonists (cooks from various African countries) under the guidance of Chef Felo Botello, allowing us to taste dishes and desserts that are hard to find in other areas and times.

This year, we will also be able to enjoy more African cinema by the hand of the Cinenómada programme, created by Al Tarab (responsible for the Tarifa African Film Festival) and sponsored by Casa África, in order to contribute to improving awareness in our country about the seventh art from this continent.
