IWE (ee-whey) Festival is an urban culture festival that boasts a vibrant array of creativity, art, and culture through literacy – on the Bluff of THE Southern University. In 2017, Councilwoman Erika Green partnered with beBATONROUGE to create an initiative to engage the Baton Rouge community in the fundamental world of literacy and reading. The IWE Festival showcases authors, local performing artists, and local vendors all in a FREE family-friendly environment. Activities for the kids are provided, including live readings from the guest speakers.
