25 May is designated as Africa Day. It represents an opportunity to celebrate the rich achievements within the arts and culture sector, and the incredible talent that exists in Africa. Arterial Network encourages its widespread members and partners across the continent to synergise current programmes and activities with this day, to highlight the beauty and power of the arts in our respective countries.
These are important moments to reflect on sector development, how far we have come, and how meaningful is the contribution of arts and culture for our communities and countries. It is also a moment to consider Africa as a whole continent, not just a fragmented scattering of peoples, languages and geographies, a moment to consider the enormous challenge of building unity between the diverse societies in which we live. As we know, the arts is well placed to lead such a process.
Please let us know about your Africa Day programmes, whatever nature they may be, whether it be celebratory events, workshops or discussions, so that we can further publicise it in our social media coverage.
