West Africa Exhibition: Word, Symbol, Song at The British Library

British Library, West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song

We are always on the lookout for exciting brands and events that showcase the vibrancy of Africa and here is another that’s doing just that.

West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song is The British Library’s first major exhibition on Africa, celebrating the complexity and diversity of West Africa’s heritage and exploring how word, symbol and song have shaped history, politics and religion in West Africa and beyond.

The dynamic exhibition is insightful and entertaining with beautiful manuscripts, historic film and sound recordings, books, photographs, and woven and printed textiles, all offering a unique perspective into a fascinating literary culture.

If, like us, you have made it your New Year's resolution to make the most of what London has to offer - don't miss out, this is one exhibition that's well worth a visit.

West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song is on at The British Library, London, until 16 February.
