The ‘Axes Sud’ programme supports exchange projects between young French-speaking people from Wallonia or Brussels and young Africans. The objective is to build a concrete project (theatre, video, exhibition, collective creation, …) around a common theme in order to discover other cultures and realities through the exchange on interesting issues. This project can take place either in Africa or in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (host).
