In July 2016, Arterial Network’s Cultural Management programme rolled out in Central Africa, Togo and Nigeria.
Arterial Network’s Cultural Management programme is geared towards creative entrepreneurs. It targets artists, arts administrators, managers, cultural officers, cultural planners and practitioners in Africa who feel the need to improve specific skills such as ability to write successful funding proposals, marketing their cultural products and strategic management of their projects and events. The programme aims to promote continuing professionalisation of the sector and limiting the dependence on foreign expertise through local workshops and courses. Arterial Network’s Cultural Management programme is funded by Stichting DOEN and AFRICALIA.
Presented by Arterial Network Central Africa, the training workshop in Central Africa was held in Bangui from 25 to 30 July at the Centre Culturel National Samba Panza, alongside the 9th edition of FITHEP (International Young Audience Theatre Festival). At least, twenty (20) cultural operators took part in the training under the guidance of two trainers: Georges Toukia, a project management trainer and Policy Officer in Arts and Culture, and Michel Ndoh Ndoh, a Cameroonian marketing and fundraising trainer.
Presented by Arterial Network Togo, the training workshop in Togo was held at the Institut Français de Lomé from 25 to 30 July 2016. The Arts Fundraising workshop was presented by Leonardo Yakanou of ARTfrica Consulting Group over the course of two days and equipped the twenty participants with the requisite skills to better formulate their project plans and improve their applications to be submitted to the Cultural Support Fund. On the 3rd day, the workshop welcomed the Fund's project, Mr Nougbolo Kodjo, who elaborated on the submission process and selection criteria for 2016.
