The Créer en Afrique centrale project aims to support the cultural and creative industries (CCIs) in the Central African region. These industries are a driver of sustainable socioeconomic development because they enable people to build professional capacities and foster an enabling environment for better access to markets. The CCIs should be seen as tools to galvanise social cohesion and inclusion and job creation, including among vulnerable communities. 

The Créer en Afrique centrale project is launching its second call for proposals with a view to supporting development projects in the CCIs, in their capacity as economic, social, and cultural players. Projects should seek to achieve lasting results and encourage cooperation. 

Through a subvention of a minimum of EUR 35.000 and a maximum of EUR 100.000, this financial support will be granted to projects that meet at least one of the following four priority axes:

  • Axis 1: projects aimed at enhancing the creation and production of goods and services, as well as increasing its quantity and quality.
  • Axis 2: projects aimed at supporting market access and dissemination of goods and services.
  • Axis 3: projects aimed at promoting visual image education among the public, in particular among young people.
  • Axis 4: projects aimed at promoting access to financing through innovative mechanisms.

The call is open to applicants legally registered in one of the following countries: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and São Tomé and Príncipe. 

The deadline for submission is Monday, 6 June 2022 at 11:59 pm (GMT).
