The Train of Culture Project was launched by UNESCO and seven African UNESCO National Committees in the early 1990's. The project was based on the idea that culture should be a living things for everyone and that the role of artists is essential in developing a culture of peace.
In May 1995 forty African artists embarked on the Culture Train to cover 5,000 km and presented their work in 7 African capitals.
