Culture as a vector of sustainable human development: that's the vision of Africalia. Art and culture facilitate discovery, and increase awareness and knowledge. They strengthen commitments and help to open up and promote dialogue. Culture and art, closely related to the concept of creativity, have a fundamental economical value and are therefore essential for the lives of thousands of people. The African continent counts many artists in all disciplines. Africalia supports this cultural and artistic richness with the objective of enabling local people, organizations and artists to blossom and to participate to a necessary change of mentality in the North as in the South.
