From the Arterial Network:
African theater houses, spectacle spaces, art galleries and museums, music, book, film industries have a future in the hands of artists. African artists are the ones to promote these industries. It is their sector and they must take control of what belongs to them. Unless African artists are able to stand-up and do things without waiting for miracles the creative sector in Africa will not immediately develop as some lazy artists on the continent may think. Look around you there is much potential, see what other fellow artists are doing. This is the change that can completely impact a lasting difference on Africa's creative economy.
Unless African artists learn to work together for the interest of the common-good of the creative sector in Africa the way may still be long. Together our cinematography, photography, publishing, and allied industries may continue to be largely underdeveloped. Artists in Africa need to know they are the owners of these industries and it is their duty individually and collectively to ensure its success today and for posterity.More I've often wondered when we will have are our own
