  • Notes: Accepts applications only in the context of the existing cooperation framework. The European Commission supports culture in Africa in the context of the Cotonou Agreement linking the European Union (EU) and 77 African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries. In line with article 27 on “Cutural development”, the Commission supports cultural programmes at national and sub-regional levels in APC countries. These contribute to the preservation and valorisation of ACP countries’ cultural heritage, and the promotion of all forms of cultural expression. These activities take place in the context of the bilateral cooperation framework beetween the EU and each ACP country. It is up to each partner country to decide whether culture will be included in this framework, what aspects of culture will be supported and for which amounts of funding. The same goes for sub-regional cooperation frameworks.
