Specific Projects

Apart from activities linked to the multi-year-program, Africalia also conducts a number of other projects and initiatives. In this category we find EU-funded projects like NZORAMA (there were before two others projects: Cinetoile and Je danse donc je suis) and projects in collaboration with different partners from Belgium, Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Mandela@Ghent Project

On the site of De Krook in Ghent, four partners – the City of Ghent, Ghent University, Africalia and the South African Embassy – decided to establish a monument in honour of Nelson Mandela. They see this artwork as a tangible expression of the ties between Ghent and South Africa. Sponsors are currently being sought to enable the project to be carried out. Read more


The main objective of Cinetoile is to encourage the promotion and distribution of African cinema in Africa. This project, set up by Africalia and funded by the European Commission, took place for 3 years from 2009 to 2011. It was based on the principle that the prestigious works of African cinema status needs to be elevated and that these works need to be recognized as elements of cultural heritage and as tools for dialogue connecting African peoples.
