Long term travels is a tradition anchored in West Africa. According to the Malian writer Amadou Hampaté Bâ, it’s the way people enter the stage of adulthood and responsibility
During the last 40 years, west African cultural practitioners used to travel to help their counterparts in organising their events. Some of the events became the meeting points of cultural practitioners of the region, where they seek exchange, develop projects and follow up the news of the field.
To facilitate the mobility of cultural practitioners within Africa, AMA is developing methodologies to increase access to information and knowledge on arts and culture within Africa.
