In the April 2009 edition of its newsletter, the Observatory of Cultural Policies in Africa states that the Euro-African Campus for Cultural Cooperation will be held in Maputo, Mozambique, June 22–26, 2009. It is an initiative of the Observatory of Cultural Policies in Africa (OCPA) and the Interarts Foundation, held in partnership with the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AECID) and in cooperation with the City of Maputo and the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Mozambique. Other sponsors include Africalia and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
The main aim of the Campus is to provide a meeting, training, and exchange point for cultural agents in Africa and Europe to reflect, transfer knowledge, share experiences, and discuss possible joint initiatives in the field of cultural cooperation, in the broader context of the contribution of culture to sustainable development. The registration period is now open.
