KinAct: Art festival in DR Congo raises awareness of throwaway culture

An arts festival in the Democratic Republic of Congo is aiming to raise awareness of throwaway culture and its affects on the environment.

Performers dressed in cans, tubes, mirrors and other materials salvaged from rubbish bins paraded through the streets of Kinshasa for the 5th edition of the KinAct festival.

Founded in 2015 in Kinshasa by visual artist Eddy Ekete and Aude Bertrand, KinAct is an international festival and artist collective that collaborates with varying performers to highlight the environmental hazards of trash.
