People will never understand each other unless they share their way of thinking and living practices. We believe that the arts form a most effective instrument to start such a process. Intercultural exchange has proved to be a rich source for a dialogue between cultures and countries, and an adequate way to recognize both confrontational differences and shared experiences.

Stichting Arts in Development Sudan (Arts Africa) 

encourages a permanent cultural exchange between young artists from The Netherlands and Africa, with a special focus on Sudan.

 

The foundation supports short and intensive artist-in-residencies in order to instruct the visiting artists in specific local artistic developments.

 

The Foundation develops a series of intercultural seminars where both young scholars and artists focus on a social problem, and search together for creative and artistic solutions.

 

In Sudan the Foundation supports the activities of its sister-organisation Arts Africa/Sudan and the Blue Nile Forum, a group of artists developing new technically inspired media practices.
