This is an initiative of the UNCTAD secretariat to bring greater pragmatism to the policy debate. It will showcase the diversity of Africa’s abundant creative talent as well as the vigour of its creative industries.
Creative Africa is based on close partnership between UNCTAD, African artists, the government of Ghana and Agoralumiere International, a non-profit organization that aims to promote Pan-African creative economies through cultural diversity. Creative Africa will bring a series of cultural events to UNCTAD XII in Accra. It is hoped that the initiative will mark a starting point for further promotion and development of Africa’s creative sector on the world stage.
This dialogue aims at officially presenting the Creative Africa Initiative to the Pan-African creative industry stakeholders and African institutions as Creative Africa is based on African ownership. It aims also at receiving their input on a Pan-African strategy and road map for the development of the Continent's creative and cultural industries.
