Organized by the Regional Center for Living Arts in Africa (CERAV/Afrique), a UNESCO category II centre, with the support of its technical and financial partners, including Wallonie-Bruxelles International and the Observatory of Cultural Policies of Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles, this workshop was chaired by the Minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism of Burkina Faso. About fifty professionals and experts from several African countries including Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo have participated in these days of exchanges.</p> <p>During 3 days, this workshop, which coincided with the celebration of Africa Day and the entry into force of the Charter for Cultural Renaissance of the African Union, invited professionals, experts and organizations of film festivals as well as regional institutions and organizations such as the African Union, ECOWAS, UEMOA, the Pan-African Federation of Filmmakers (FEPACI) and the Pan-African Film Festival (FEPACI) and the Pan-African Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou , to reflect on the conditions for improving the impacts of festivals on the development of the cinema industry in Africa in the context of Covid-19.</p> <p>Based on the results of the study commissioned by UNESCO with a view to supporting African States in the creation of cultural and creative industries, the participants discussed the systems of sustainable governance of festivals, their economic models, the professionalization of players in the value chain as well as the development of network dynamics to strengthen a creative, endogenous and efficient film industry. Attached to the 2005 UNESCO Convention, issues relating to human rights, freedom of expression and gender in the cinema sector were discussed, considering that festivals contribute to an awareness that promotes individual emancipation and on these issues in societies in general.</p> <p>Observing the positive side of the global health context, Covid-19 has favored the integration of new media and the consideration of the digital environment as alternatives ensuring the international visibility of festivals.</p> <p>At the level of cooperation, Wallonia Brussels International notably presented the economic instruments deployed in West Africa to support the cultural and creative industries in the cinema sector.</p> <p>Communication Department</p></div> Mon, 17 Jan 2022 10:48:50 +0000 adminceravf 14 at https://www.ceravafrique.org The situation of the African artist on the menu of exchanges https://www.ceravafrique.org/node/15 <span>The situation of the African artist on the menu of exchanges</span> <div class="field field--name-field-sur-titre field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Atelier régional de Ségou</div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">adminceravf</span></span> <span>Mon, 01/17/2022 - 10:44</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2022-01/segou_cerav.jpg" width="655" height="472" alt="segou" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>From January 31 to February 1, 2019, a regional seminar on "the situation of the African artist" was held in Ségou (Republic of Mali).

".</p> <p>Organized by the Regional Center for Living Arts in Africa (CERAV / Africa) in partnership with the Center for Linguistic and Historical Studies by Oral Traditions African Union (CELHTO-UA) and benefiting from the support of the Government of the Republic of Niger, this workshop brought together about thirty participants, representatives of cultural civil society organizations and ministries in charge of culture from 11 African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria , Democratic Republic of Congo, Togo) and two European countries (Belgium and France).</p> <p>This workshop was opened by the Acting Minister for Cultural Renaissance, Arts and Social Modernization of Niger in the presence of Mr. Stanislas MEDA, Secretary General of the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Tourism of Burkina Faso , representing his Minister, sponsor of this workshop, MM. TUBLU Komi N’kégbé Fogâ and Michel SABA, respectively Coordinator of CELHTO-UA and General Delegate of CERAV/AFRICA and heads of partners who supported the project to implement this workshop and whose names are: Africalia (Belgium) , Observatory of Cultural Policies in Africa (Mozambique), Culture and Development, (France), ECOWAS (Nigeria) and the Institute of African Culture and International Understanding (Nigeria). The general objective set is to deepen the reflection on the mechanisms making it possible to guarantee the effective participation of civil society in the implementation of normative instruments guiding public policies in the field of culture within African States.</p> <p>It is in a very good atmosphere that the work of the workshop takes place, alternating communications and debates, under the moderation of experienced cultural personalities such as Pr Lupwishi MBUYAMBA, Dr Stanislas MEDA, Secretary General of the Ministry in charge of the culture of Burkina Faso, Ambassador Filipe SAWADOGO, a great activist of intercultural and interreligious dialogue in Africa, Mrs. Valéria MARCOLLIN of the NGO Culture and Development based in Grenoble and Mr. Frédéric JACQUEMIN of the Africalia cultural cooperation agency, based in Brussels (Belgium). The communications and debates made it possible to address subjects reflecting the diversity of issues and challenges related to the development of culture in Africa in general, and specifically those playing a key role in achieving the objectives of the 2005 UNESCO Convention, the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance and the Sustainable Development Goals.</p> <p>It emerges from the discussions that, to varying degrees, civil society has been actively called upon to the extent of its means. There are, however, limits related to the weak structuring of civil society organizations and their weak capacity to federate their efforts to carry out actions in synergy.</p> <p>The work of the workshop showed a strong contributory potential of African cultural civil society to the appropriation, dissemination and implementation of international normative instruments such as the 2005 Convention and the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance. The participants in the workshop pledged to be key players in the implementation of the resolutions taken and in sensitizing African States for the acceleration of the ratification of the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance as well as for the implementation of the UNESCO 2005 Convention and the African Union's Agenda 2063.</p> <p>Au terme des travaux, les participants ont adopté une déclaration dite de Niamey, une recommandation et quatre motions de remerciements.</p> <p>Service de la Communication</p></div> Mon, 17 Jan 2022 08:55:58 +0000 adminceravf 17 at https://www.ceravafrique.org Official launch of activities by His Excellency Mr. Paul Kaba THIEBA, Prime Minister, Head of Government. https://www.ceravafrique.org/node/11 <span>Official launch of activities by His Excellency Mr. Paul Kaba THIEBA, Prime Minister, Head of Government.</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">adminceravf</span></span> <span>Fri, 01/14/2022 - 09:54</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2022-01/album1_bobo28mars.jpg" width="693" height="365" alt="lanement cerav" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>The Regional Center for the Performing Arts in Africa (CERAV / Africa) organized the official launching ceremony of its activities on Monday March 28, 2016.</p> <p>This launch, which took place on the sidelines of the 18th edition of the National Culture Week, was attended by certain members of the Government, customary, religious, administrative authorities and eminent personalities from the world of culture.</p> <p>Indeed, this ceremony took place under the high Patronage of His Excellency<br /> Mr. Paul Kaba THIEBA, Prime Minister, Head of Government of Burkina Faso. It was also placed under the Sponsorship of PrFiliga Michel SAWADOGO, Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation, moreover, President of the National Commission of UNESCO and under the Presidency of Mr. Tahirou BARRY, Minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism.</p> <p>It was a great moment for Mr. Michel SABA, General Delegate of CERAV / Africa, to carry the missions of his structure as a Category 2 Center placed under the aegis of UNESCO, intervening in the cultural sector and particularly in the field of performing arts including cinema and audiovisual on the scale of the African continent, to the knowledge of the authorities and invited personalities.</p> <p> <br /> He also noted that the Center also has the mission of supporting in Africa the implementation of the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.<br /> CERAV / Africa will also facilitate in Africa the sharing of experience on good practices in the field of living arts and the audiovisual sector and also strengthen cultural cooperation.<br /> For the Minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism, president of the ceremony, “the promotion of the performing arts is of capital importance for Burkina Faso and Africa because to develop sustainably our peoples need to be based on the foundation of a culture which humanizes us, which leads us to lay the foundations of national cohesion and international understanding ”</p> <p>As for the sponsor Professor Filiga Michel SAWADOGO, Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation and also President of the National Commission for UNESCO, he urged the technical and financial partners to support the operationalization of CERAV / Africa because according to him "the cultural, intellectual, political, social and diplomatic benefits of the cultural action of the institution will be beneficial for all at the regional level"<br /> To testify to the interest of this Center, we noted the impressive presence of key players in Burkinabè culture such as the Living Human Treasures (THV) of Burkina Faso and an Ivorian delegation accompanied by a troop of traditional animation at this ceremony. This highlights not only the involvement of local actors but also the regional vocation of the Center.</p> <p>Great moments marked this ceremony. Thus, His Excellency the Prime Minister, patron of this launch, first received gifts from the Ivorian delegation represented by Mr. Fousséni DEMBELE, Chief of Staff of the Minister of Culture and Francophonie of the Republic of Ivory Coast. With the whole delegation accompanying him, His Excellency then proceeded to visit the premises of the Center and finally left a note in the Centre's guestbook.<br /> At the end of these moments, His Excellency Mr. Paul Kaba THIEBA did not fail to reiterate the will of the Government regarding the respect of the agreement signed with UNESCO in Paris in June 2010. He also unequivocally underlined the will of the Government to provide support to CERAV / Africa for the influence of culture at the national and regional level.</p> <p>At the end of the ceremony, His Excellency expressed himself in these terms: “It is a pleasure to come here, because the CERAV is an institution which was created with the assistance of UNESCO to support the culture. . As the minister said, it brings together several African countries. It’s going to be an opportunity for artists to express themselves. Culture is the foundation on which we build a country. It is important that I come here to inaugurate this Center, which is the first in Africa, in terms of culture. It is my duty to come to thank UNESCO, and especially to encourage young people, to take an interest in culture and to promote it, to take an interest in the culture of others to promote the intermingling of African peoples (...). The state must make its contribution to the functioning of the center. It undertakes to respect its financial commitments to ensure its sustainability.

This neglect of culture pains me a lot.</p> <p>Seeing a whole parterre of men of culture, guarantors of tradition, octogenarians kneaded with the knowledge of poiroter for 4 hours under a shed in an execrable heat, I wonder what importance we will give to this Regional Center for the Arts Alive in Africa (CERAV / Africa)? Fortunately, Tahirou Barry was able to soothe our hearts while showing reassuring optimism about the success of this project, which goes directly to the protection and promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions.</p> <p>Let's talk about it! This desire to offer our continent a support structure for the implementation of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and above all specializing in the promotion of the performing arts as well as cinema and audiovisual can only be operational thanks to the will of our States. It is desirable that this cooperation is not simply institutional but above all financial. The presence of such a center, in my opinion, will compensate for this notorious lack of exchanges and communication between our States in the field of the Performing Arts (music, theater, dance, cinema and audiovisual). For example: a reliable channel for the distribution of African films could be set up. This will allow us to no longer sell our films at full price on television channels around the world. Some sort of regulation on the exploitation of the performing arts could be put in place. A reliable plan for the dissemination of dance, music, theater performances, etc.<br /> Nowadays, with the all-out presence of new technologies, the promotion, dissemination, protection, management and production of the performing arts in Africa is a real mess.<br /> This is why, in my opinion, if CERAV / Africa is emerging, it is above all: to protect and promote cultural diversity. Minister Barry in his words said this in substance "... To develop sustainably, our peoples need to be based on the foundation of a culture which humanizes us, which makes us aware and which leads us to lay the foundations for cohesion. national and international understanding ”. This national cohesion precisely, also requires the taking into account of the African States to consequently inject money in this sector. Everything should not be limited to papers, speeches and inaugurations with great fanfare. The capacities, for example, of cultural actors and promoters must be strengthened. A dignified and dynamic board of directors must be put in place. Especially that we do not see later in the confusion or scheming like the FEPACI in Ouagadougou or the BBDA. We would like to see a sincere, enterprising team set up whose ambitions are only collective and not individual under the basis of transparency.</p> <p>Stimulate interculturality in order to develop cultural interaction in a spirit of building bridges between peoples. This is a point in this CERAV / Africa that interests me particularly! Because this will allow for a dialogue and the sharing of experiences in a pan-African way. A real cultural mix that will further strengthen the links. I can't wait for this to be effective!</p> <p>In short, the impressive presence of key players in our culture at the launch of CERAV / Africa demonstrates the interest of this project. Never in a long time have I seen so many actors and monuments of our culture come together. Living human treasures as a whole with Me Tintenga Pacéré at their head. Teacher. Prosper Kompaoré (ATB), Ardiouma Soma (FESPACO), Ildevert Meda (CARTEL), Serges Aimé Coulibaly (Cpie Faso dance theater), Bara Walib, Smockey, Ousmane Boundaoné, Ali Diallo, Télesphone Bationo, Michel Somé Bossofa, Famille Kouyaté…<br /> All the bad that one can wish for the Regional Center for the Performing Arts in Africa, is that it thrives in the missions which are assigned to it.</p> <p>A thought to Prof Jean-Pierre Guingané that I would have liked him to be present.</p> <p> </p></div> Fri, 14 Jan 2022 09:47:28 +0000 adminceravf 10 at https://www.ceravafrique.org Speech by Mr. Tahirou BARRY Minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism, at Board's members Installation ceremony https://www.ceravafrique.org/node/7 <span>Speech by Mr. Tahirou BARRY Minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism, at Board&#039;s members Installation ceremony</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">adminceravf</span></span> <span>Thu, 01/13/2022 - 10:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2022-01/Tahirou-Barry.jpg" width="500" height="390" alt="tahirou barry" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>The opportunity is really good for us to meet again today, here in Bobo-Dioulasso, with the friends and partners of Burkina Faso, for once again, “to add earth to earth” (as one of our “Living Human Treasures”) for the construction of an Africa proud, united and strong of its heritage and its richness of its cultural diversity.</p> <p>Allow me, first of all, to greet and welcome, on behalf of the Head of Government, all the guest personalities who honor us today with their presence in Burkina Faso, as part of the holding of the first session of the CERAV / Africa Board of Directors, as representatives of institutions, member states, or regional organizations of cultural civil society.<br /> With your cheers, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to invite you, once again, to greet these friends and partners of Burkina Faso!</p> <p>I would also like to welcome here the presence among us of my honorable elders, the former ministers of culture, Mr. Mahamoudou OUEDRAOGO and Mr. Filippe SAVADOGO.
