Participation of Burkina Faso in the 2nd Meeting of the Technical Committee for Follow-up on Youth, Culture and Sport (CTS-JCS2) of the African Union in Addis Ababa
A striking fact: the ratification of the Charter of African Cultural Renaissance by Burkina Faso, announced by Minister Tahirou BARRY to the African Union!
Welcome to everyone on the CERAV / Africa Website!
The opportunity is really good for us to meet today, here in Bobo-Dioulasso, with the friends and partners of Burkina Faso, for once again, "add some down to earth" (as one of our "Living Human Treasures") for the construction of a proud, united Africa with strong cultural heritage and richness.
The official opening of the headquarters and the launch of the activities of the Regional Center for the Living Arts in Africa (CERAV / Africa) took place on Monday, March 29, 2016 in Bobo-Dioulasso, on the sidelines of National Culture Week (SNC). Several cultural actors attended the ceremony sponsored by Prime Minister Paul Kaba Thiéba. The first of its kind in Burkina, CERAV / Africa aims to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expressions.
Inaugurated in very regrettable conditions, increased delay of the Prime Minister Paul KabaThieba, I am afraid that the culture is again the last concerns of this government. This neglect of culture makes me very sad.
