The British Council has launched a West Africa Festival Fund.
The organisation aims to connect UK and West African festivals catering to any of several art fields.
These connections, says the festival, “will be facilitated through reciprocal programming of young, emerging artists between UK and West African festivals, professional development of artists and festival management teams, exchange visits between UK and West Africa and other collaborative activities between festivals in the UK and West Africa”.
The fund is set up to support 10 projects involving West Africa and the UK in music, film, performing and visual arts, architecture, design, fashion and literature.
