“Mobility & Touring in East Africa”

Art Moves Africa (AMA), an international not-for-profit organization, just published a report entitled “Mobility & Touring in East Africa”, which presents the results of a research study on the performing arts sector in East Africa.

The objective of the study was to identify the main actors in the performing arts in East Africa and to analyze the relevance and frequency of artistic mobility from that geographical area towards the whole African continent.

With the support of AMA partners in the region and interviews carried out in situ, the study resulted in a three-part publication concerning

  • The identification and mapping of available infrastructure and human resources in the performing arts;
  • The identification and analysis of opportunities and major obstacles to mobility in East Africa;
  • Proposed feasible and practical solutions for the implementation of mobility.

An e-published version of this report is available for download on the Arterial Network website.
