House of Words (HoW) refers to “la Casa de la Palabra” – a traditional meeting place common in Equatorial Guinea and some African societies providing a hub for oral history, storytelling, performance, and ritual. GIBCA 2015’s HoW functions as a social platform for multidisciplinary discussion, exchange, and collaboration throughout the biennial and beyond.
HoW has hosted 4 sessions of roundtable conversations focusing on themes that directly reference GIBCA 2015’s curatorial framework. Join us on the 21st of November for the 5th and final session during the final closing weekend of GIBCA 2015.
