Arterial Network is pleased to announce the reinitiation of its local affiliate in Mozambique. Arterial Network Mozambique is now one of four representatives of the network based in southern Africa, rejoining Arterial Network South Africa, Arterial Network Swaziland and Arterial Network Zimbabwe. With the technical and financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Arterial Network Mozambique recommenced their activities with a training workshop for cultural managers. The workshop was open to those representing the local cultural civil society in Maputo, Gaza and Inhambane provinces. Thirty participants from fifteen organisations, associations, cultural groups and cultural enterprises attended the workshop that took place from the 15th to the 17th of August in Maputo at the Centro de Recursos Juvenis - Mozarte.
The training aimed to strengthen cultural managers, cultural entrepreneurs, artists and civil society organisations by developing their capacities for project design and management to ensure the sustainability of their activities and their organisations. Specifically, the training addressed the following skills: 1) How to plan a project; 2) How to write an effective project plan; 3) How to strategise and mobilise available resources (particularly financial resources); and 4) How to communicate a project to potential donors.
The outcomes of the training were positive as each participant ended the workshop with a copy of a complete project plan that they had developed during the course of the training. Similarly, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Arterial Network Mozambique and those associations, organisations and entrepreneurs present during the training, including Mugache, Hopangalatana, Nkoswe, Litanga, Esculturas Humanas, Kucha Ka Dambo, SOMAS, Lareira, WARETWA, Muhodjo, Tsimbiliane, Swamavoku, Observatory of Cultural Policies in Africa (OCPA), Majescoral, KUDUMBA, Associação Cultural Bairro do Ferroviario, Associação Cultural dos Amigos de Khongolote, Teatro Girassol, Timbila ta Gwevane, Guezi e Amocine, and the National Directorate of Cultural Heritage (Direcção Nacional do Património Cultural).
