“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. The Culture at Work Africa digital showcase pays tribute to all of 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 Digital Showcase includes the 33 projects that were carried out 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) in the framework of Culture at Work Africa between 2019 and 2021.
