Art Moves Africa (AMA) is an international not-for-profit organisation that aims to facilitate cultural and artistic exchanges within the African continent. AMA offers travel funds to artists, arts professionals and cultural operators living and working in Africa to travel within the African continent in order to engage in the exchange of information, the enhancement of skills, the development of informal networks, and the pursuit of cooperation.


  • Facilitate regional and transregional cultural exchanges in Africa for individual artists/cultural operators and cultural organisations and encourage the mobility of artists and cultural professionals to exchange experiences, information and ideas
  • Encourage artists and cultural operators to work towards shared projects and artistic collaborations across the continent
  • Provide the opportunities for artists and cultural operators to gain more knowledge of the diverse contexts and the cultural environments of the African continent
  • Encourage independent initiatives, small projects and participation in highly professional artistic and arts management workshops, seminars and residencies for artists
  • Encourage the attendance of festivals that provide artists and cultural operators with the opportunity to gain wider exposure and enrich their own creativity
  • Develop methodologies to increase access to information and knowledge on arts and culture within Africa
