The project “Culture at Work Africa – The Public Value of Culture for Social Cohesion and Urban Development in Africa”, coordinated by Interarts, participated actively and had a great impact at the European Development Days (EDD) 2019!
The project was presented in two Pop-up sessions at the Interarts stand: “The Value of Culture to reduce inequalities in Africa” and “Presentation of Culture at Work Africa- Sub-Granted Project“, both with the contribution of the partners Farai Mpunya (Culture Fund, Zimbabwe) and Michel Saba (CERAV/Afrique, Burkina Faso); as well as of some of the beneficiaries of the first call.
In addition, the project partners met during the two days of the event to finalize the evaluation process of the proposals received in the second call. Also, in the framework of the EDDs, the International Colloquium “Culture for the Future” was organized by the European Commission, where 400 professionals from the cultural and creative sector met in Brussels to explore the contribution of the cultural and creative sectors to sustainable development and inclusion. Carole Karemera, coordinator of the “Beyond Caring Project” funded by Culture at Work Africa, read the Manifesto at the closing session.
