South Africa

South Africa is among the African countries with a strong cultural sector, which benefits from State support and laws governing its functioning. Africalia is active mainly in Johannesburg and Cape Town, working with four cultural operators there (VANSA, PANSA, CDT and the Arterial Network platform) who share its vision of culture as a vector of development. These partners work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, cultural professionals and other researchers, journalists, etc. These operators are working for the change in attitudes (VANSA, PANSA and CDT) that is essential for the establishment of a more egalitarian society and for a fully developed cultural economy in the country (the Arterial Network).
