Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is among the most productive African countries in the cultural sector. Its development policies acknowledge culture as one of the pillars of economic growth of the country.

Africalia is active in Burkina Faso for several years now. Its partnerships are based on a shared interest in the professionalisation of the platforms and cultural operators, but also in intensifying interactions and networking between them. Africalia works with five structures: Cartel, Plateforme Culturelle du Burkina Faso (PCBF), Maison de la Parole, Institut de l’Image et du Son-Studio Ecole (ISIS-SE) and Cinéma Numérique Ambulant Afrique (CNA Afrique).
