Event report #4: AU-EU cultural relations partnership

The first-ever Africa-Europe Week and 6th Europe Africa Business Forum (EABF) were held between 14 to 17 February 2022 and led by the European Commission, European cultural organisations, and cultural and civil society actors from the European Union (EU) and African Union (AU).

culture Solutions’ Training and know-how sharing team was invited to contribute to the assessment of the 26 different culture-related events in the Week and EABF agenda, including lectures, showcases as well as presentations of artistic projects. In doing so, we contributed on the main takeaways to strengthen future Africa-Europe dialogue events and programming related to culture and its possibilities. This Event report shares culture Solutions’ reflections on the events and what they tell us about the aspects of the Africa-EU partnership that matter most in the post-COVID context.
