African Cultural Renaissance

SignedLetterofEndorsement

The Africa Clockwise adventure was endorsed by Minister Paul Mashatile of the South African Dept of Arts and Culture, to raise awareness around:

1) African solutions to climate change challenges

2) the AU’s Charter for African Cultural Renaissance.

Mark Sampson will be performing his Africa Clockwise eco-medy show at schools and embassies en route, and Sam Pearce will be promoting the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance’s focus on:

  • Regional cultural integration.
  • Cross border cultural exchange.
  • The development of new markets for cultural groups, linked to audience development and arts education in schools.
  • Cultural tourism, including festivals.

She will also be visiting Arterial Network chapters wherever possible, and meeting with arts and culture organisations in each country to spread a message of connection and pan-African pride.
