ACP-EU Culture Program: Support For Cultural And Creative Sectors In West Africa (2021-2024)

Dive into a selection of work we’ve been able to develop as beneficiaries of The AWA consortium’s creative and cultural support. 

ACP-EU Culture Programme 

Nubuke Foundation was awarded the 2021-2024 ACP-EU Culture Programme: Support for Cultural and Creative Sectors in West Africa grant for its project titled ‘Artsbridge’. Broadly, Nubuke’s project touches on the creation or production of quality goods and services and access to markets axes of the program. The main beneficiaries of the program are weaving collectives operating in three selected towns in the Upper West region of Ghana (Nadowli, Nandom, and Wa). In addition, the project seeks to instigate collaborations between fabric users and weavers through the annual Woori Festival.

Under the grant, completed activities include establishing a work plan, conducting research and compiling lists of weaving collectives and cultural heritage, organizing the Woori festival, and developing a web platform. The Art West Africa (AWA) consortium, which includes the Koré Centre in Ségou, Mali, and the Institut Francais, oversees the program.
