If you are looking for unusual and fun things to do when you stay in Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, pay a visit to Village Kiyi. This unique project is a cooperative in the centre of the city that brings together artists and performers, and gives training to local youth.
There are regular dinner performances of theatre and music, which includes a meal of traditional Ivory Coast foods. The village is also a great place to buy textiles, jewellery and art. Village Kiyi is the brainchild of Cameroon artist Werewere Liking, and the name Kiyi means ‘ultimate knowledge’ in her native language.
