The Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions is now available in Bambara

The text of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions is now available in Bambara, one of Mali’s most commonly spoken languages, on the UNESCO website.

The Bambara version was made possible by Acte Sept, a Malian cultural association that founded the Malian Coalition for Cultural Diversity, a subject we mentioned in our April 2, 2012 newsletter.

Translating the Convention into Malian local languages is one of Acte Sept’s primary aims, in order to promote better understanding of the Convention by all stakeholders in Mali and contribute to Convention implementation and development of a regional cultural policy.

For more details, please consult the UNESCO website.
