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.
