The 3rd edition of the African Creative Economy Conference will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from October 6 to 9 at the initiative of the Arterial Network cultural network.
This meeting will bring together cultural stakeholders, artists, academics, and policymakers to take stock of the status and progress of creative industries in Africa. These industries will be examined as economic drivers but also as factors contributing to the eradication of poverty, the strengthening of democratic processes, and the protection of human rights. The goal is to facilitate the production and distribution of African creative services, both on the continent and around the world.
Arterial Network was founded at a conference on Goree Island, Senegal, in 2007, and is now one of Africa's leading intercultural networks, with national chapters in 40 countries.
