About

 

This website is a project of Arterial Network. The Arterial Network started as a dynamic, continent-wide network of non-government organisations, creative industry companies, festivals and individual artists engaged in the African creative sector at a conference – Revitalising Africa’s Cultural Assets - on Goree Island, March 2007.
 
At its second biennial meeting in Johannesburg, September 2009 attended by 132 delegates from 28 African countries, a decision was taken to build a more formal network which led to the adoption of a constitutional framework, the election of a ten-person Steering Committee (two per African region), the appointment or election of 28 country representatives and the adoption of strategic priorities for the next 3-5 years. 
 
Arterial Network is administered by a Secretariat based in Cape Town, East African regional secretariat in Kenya, with regional secretariats (West, Central , South and North) in the pipeline.
