Africa week


  • Following the first phase of celebrations of the 2021 edition of the Africa Week, which took place in May, the second phase of celebrations started yesterday. This Official Opening of the Africa Week organized in presence of the Director General of UNESCO, was marked by the presentation of the book “Africa at UNESCO Art Collection”, published on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of UNESCO. This second phase of celebrations will continue until 26 November 2021. UNESCO Africa week is the annual flagship event of the Africa Group at UNESCO, a body that brings together Member States of the African continent. Africa week includes a kaleidoscope of cultural, scientific, artistic and epicurean events in honor of Africa Day (25 May), when the Organization of African Unity (OAU), known today as the African Union (AU), was founded in 1963. The publication “Africa at UNESCO Art Collection” is the result of a fruitful collaboration between the Priority Africa and Administration sectors, which are responsible for the conservation and management of the collection. Precisely, for the immense and rich cultural heritage of Africa, which is often undervalued, UNESCO has decided to promote and celebrate 2021 as a year dedicated to the African Union to Arts, Culture and Heritage, reaffirming its commitment to Africa.
