Cultural Institute of French Expression
Another sign of the cultural aspirations of the people of Malabo.
French art and culture in the city.
This institution was founded in 1985 with the aim of teaching the French language in what had been the only Spanish colony in the area, thus bringing it closer to most neighbouring countries. The centre complements its teaching mission with artistic and cultural activities that include occasional exhibitions of painting and sculpture, along with clothing or traditional African masks. The Cultural Institute of French Expression collaborates in different musical events and carries out initiatives to promote sustainable and respectful behavior with regard to the environment among Guineans. A good example is the ecological carnival launched last year with the aim of sensitising the local population on the importance of treating urban waste in an appropriate manner.
