This multimedia digital showcase presents the diversity of 33 artistic projects for social cohesion carried out by several organisations, creators and cultural professionals from the project’s 15 participating African countries over the period 2018-2021.

“The African continent must be a laboratory. We must imagine novel forms; we must reinvent a richer and more open humanity.”

This is how Senegalese economist Felwine Sarr described a possible reinvention of Africa. The continent’s emerging leaders and activists will undoubtedly play a key role. An online exhibition, ‘Culture at Work Africa, Multimedia Digital Showcase & Graphic Wall Map’ pays tribute to them by presenting a series of recent groundbreaking initiatives that highlight the importance of intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity in the development of inclusive and peaceful societies within the continent’s complex urban spaces and politically sensitive crossroads.

The Multimedia Digital Showcase and Graphic Wall Map include 33 projects that were conducted in 15 African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zimbabwe).
