Arterial Network


Arterial Network is a dynamic, continent-wide network of individuals, organisations, donors, companies and institutions engaged in the African creative and cultural sector. It was established at a conference – 'Revitalising Africa’s Cultural Assets' - on Goree Island in Senegal in 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, South Africa. The network has also decentralised its operations by establishing regional secretariats in West and East Africa, Mali and Kenya, respectively. Central, South and North African Secretariats will soon be established.
