ACP-EU Support Programme to ACP Cultural Sectors
With the Financial contribution of the European Union (European
Development Fund) and the assistance of the ACP Group of States.
The African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) holds precious and distinctive cultural traditions and heritage. However, in countries such as Ghana, Liberia and Cameroon artists and cultural entrepreneurs face limited means when it comes to distribute cultural products and services.
The ACP Street Libraries project aims to support the development of culture in ACP countries by promoting and creating new Street Libraries in Liberia and Cameroon and updating the existing ones in Ghana. One of the main focus is on getting the ancient and rich African literature and culture to become accessible to a large number of people in Africa, focusing on children and young people in order for them to have equal access to literacy, educational and cultural resources.
The new apps developed for this project will allow the contribution and promotion of discussions and cooperation between local artists, story tellers, professionals and entrepreneurs of the cultural sector in the ACP States by creating an online forum and blogs for local artists. It will also facilitate the access to the Street Libraries’ book catalog.
