Days to remember

World Refugee Day

The UN General Assembly, on 4 December 2000, adopted resolution 55/76 where it noted that 2001 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, and that the Organization of African Unity (OAU) had agreed to have International Refugee Day coincide with Africa Refugee Day on 20 June.

The General Assembly therefore decided that, from 2001, 20 June would be celebrated as World Refugee Day.

Welcome to

The idea of the Arts in Africa website was born in 2007 at the Arterial Conference on revitalizing African Cultural assets held in Goree Island in Senegal. One of the resolutions made at the conference was the need to create a repository of information, resources and material on African arts and culture. Accordingly, the Arterial Network, with the support of the DOEN Foundation, European Union and HIVOS decided to produce, host and maintain a comprehensive and up-to-date website on African arts, culture, heritage and the creative industries.

The objective of this website is to be a one stop portal for information about the arts in Africa listed by country as well as discipline. It includes information on UNESCO branches, Funding Agencies, E-newsletters, Cultural Policy, Creative Industries, Events, Conferences, Training Institutions and civil society organisations among others.
