Creation in Africa and the Caribbean

The Afrique et Caraïbes en creations program aims to help artists and cultural operators from both of these regions to develop both nationally and internationally.
Set up in 1991, it has been effective in enabling a host of talented artists to be discovered and in professionalizing operators and festivals that now play a decisive role in the circulation of artists and works alongside the French Cultural Network outside of France.
Supports for Festivals
The Afrique et Caraïbes en créations program supports cultural operators for the development of a large number of festivals in Africa and the Caribbean in all fields of the living arts. It assists in creation as well as in the presentation of artists and their works.
International presence of Artists
Afrique et Caraïbes en créations encourages mobility by enabling artists to be present in international market channels and express themselves at major locations devoted to artistic creation. In 2014, Fatou Cissé, from Senegal, will be presented to a public in Brazil, and Commissioner Christine Eyene will offer the perceptions of photographers of African origin on issues regarding gender, entitled « Where we’re at », at the BOZAR Museum of Brussels.

Major events

African dance Biennial
Bamako encounters
As a stepping stone for African photography, the Bamako Encounters (Rencontres de Bamako) will now open its doors to new images and videos. Attracting more than 400 international professionals in the first week of its opening, the Biennial offers greater visibility to the artists selected via a call for applications. At the end of this event, the exhibits then move to international museums and arts centers.

Budding Creation

Aid for Creation
Aid is provided to projects involving creation in the scenic and visual arts via a call for applications, with files to be submitted to IFprog in the fall.
Artist Residencies : Visas for Creation
Visas for Creation is a residency program (3-6 months) for young talent. It is open to artists residing in Africa or in the Caribbean wishing to develop a specific research or creation project in France or in another country of Africa or the Caribbean. The residency program aims to enable artists to perfect their art, extend their visibility and give leverage to their career.
