The programme seeks to partner civil society organisations (CSOs) with locally or regionally operated cultural establishments (conservatories, public art schools, etc.) who will then present a joint proposal for a project responding to a local need.
Eligible candidates are partnerships rooted in equal cooperation and an exchange of good practice between one French and one African entity.
Eligible entities include: associations, foundations, locally or regionally run cultural public establishments having been in operation for at least two years.
The Accès Culture programme also encourages revitalising cooperation between existing partners.
Eligible projects feature cultural cooperation and are oriented around community arts outreach (awareness and arts education, initiation into a specific art medium, organisation of artistic get-togethers, etc.).
The primary goal is to strengthen social ties in Africa by bringing the arts closer to individuals who would otherwise have limited access to such cultural exposure due to their social, economic, cultural and/or geographic background or because of their gender or a disability.
Through its involvement in the Accès Culture programme, the Conseil Presidentiel pour l’Afrique supports cultural operators from Africa and the Diaspora in France, ambassadors of the common imagination between Africa and France.
The laboratory Les Afriques dans le monde (African Diasporas Chair) is a partner of the Accès Culture programme through a research project on the active citizenship of the African diasporas in France through the prism of cultural entrepreneurship.
