The “Lumières d’Afriques” exhibition, presented in 2015 in Paris, at the “Théâtre National de Chaillot”, in Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire in 2016, then in early 2017 in Dakar in Senegal and finally in the African Union’s headquarters until February 2018 in Ethiopia.

Jointly organized by African Artists for Development and the African Union, bringing together the artworks of these african artists at the very heart of this organisation is a strong symbol highlighting the AAD’s willingness to act with local actors as well as Its commitment in the continent’s development. The cultural and artistic Ethiopian wealth, as much ancestral as contemporary, makes this country an obvious stage for the exhibition.

The Schneider Electric Foundation and the communication consulting firm TILDER share this conviction that Africa is the today’s and tomorrow’s continent. The reception of children and pupils and their participation to a pedagogical project strengthen the conviction that the continent dynamism reflects the great vitality of its youth.

 

 

Artistic Direction : Jean-Michel Champault

As you know, the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide. After Asia, Europe and the American continent, the African continent sees the Covid19 epidemic coming with great concern, given the limited health infrastructures available in some countries.

 

All the AAD teams wish to give their warm support to the artists, professionals, partners and volunteers involved in our projects throughout Africa.

 

We have preventively taken the decision to temporarily suspend all our activities in the field in order to participate in the security of all and to try stop the spread of the virus on the continent.

 

As we know today, the speed of implementation of measures to protect people on a collective scale is critical in the future fight against the impact of this virus.

 

In these times of containment, you can find some of our projects and keep in touch on :
