The Festival International de Slam et Humour (FISH) Mali is an annual event in Bamako (Mali), organised by slam artist Abdul Aziz Koné and his Maison Agoratoire, a cultural organisation and a partner of Voice4thought. The 2018 edition focused on the topic of children and youth with disabilities. Events took place in a number of venues across Bamako, from the Institut Francais to Blonba cultural center, and Maison Agoratoire, located in Lafiabougou, a densely populated neighbourhood. 

FISH Mali 2018 was also the occasion of Mali's first ever national stand-up comedy competition. Voice4thought attended FISH Mali 2018 and participated in some of the workshops.
