The Africa Art Box network
Africa Art Box is more than just an event; it is a network of multidisciplinary and international professionals. It aims to be a focal point to crystallize the contemporary dynamics already developed in Africa and also to serve as a window to create visibility in the work undertaken by artists in the continent that are already sensitive to these new languages of creation.

What is Africa ArtBox?
Contributing to the creation of an environment more convenient to research and experimentation of new esthetic languages originating from the new media in Africa and supporting artists of the continent in the construction of a structured, evolving career, in the global dynamics of exchange and interdisciplinary collaborations at the regional and international level, such is the challenge of Africa Artbox.
It is the challenge of every artist to decode their world and to witness time.
