Ko-Falen Cultural Center, located in Portland, Oregon, and Bamako, Mali, is the inspiration of Baba Wagué Diakité, a Malian artist and writer now living in Portland. It has been his dream to share the culture of his home country with the people of his adopted home. Ko-Falen Cultural Center seeks to promote cultural, artistic and educational exchanges between the people of the United States and Mali through art workshops, dance, music and ceremony.
