The “Programme ACP-EU Culture - 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.
This call for proposals contains three lots. Proposals can only be submitted for one of the following lots:
