World Day for African and Afrodescendant Culture

unesco-united-nations-educational-scientific-and-cultural-organization-vector-logo-2022

Celebrated every 24 January, the World Day for African and Afrodescendant Culture marks the African Union's adoption of the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance on this date in 2006. In its preamble, the Charter says, "the African peoples were able to find in African culture the necessary strength for resistance and the liberation of the continent". 

On this World Day, it is not simply a single, individual culture which we are celebrating, but a multitude of cultures of exceptional diversity. We are also honouring artists from every country and in every field – from film, music and dance to fashion and design, all creative industries which sustain artists – in order to foster the African cultural renaissance. 

Message from Ms Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO

The "Little Hunter's Museum" of the Ju/'Hoansi-San close to Tsumkwe offers visitors the exclusive possibility within Namibia to experience an original hunt, apart from getting to know a very old hunter- gatherer culture.
