Short Description:

Overall goal

Der Verein African Cultural Promotion veranstaltet im Oktober 2008 das elfte afrikanische Kulturfestivals "AfriCult" in Wien. Zentrales Anliegen von AfriCult ist, das Wissen über und das Verständnis für Afrika und die afrikanische Diaspora in Österreich zu verbessern.

Neben dem Kultur- und Kunstschwerpunkt ist im Rahmen des Festivals 2007 das Dialogprogramm "AfriDialog" geplant, das sich mit europäisch-afrikanischen Beziehungen auseinandersetzt. An drei Themenabenden diskutieren ExpertInnen, EntscheidungsträgerInnen und afrikanische Diaspora folgende Themen: "Flucht aus Afrika nach Österreich bzw. Europa ist keine Lösung", "Was ist afrikanische Demokratie?" und "Sozio-politische Konflikte Afrikas und rassische Ausgrenzung in Europa". Das Dialogprogramm soll 2008 auch in Linz stattfinden.

Das Projekt wird aus OEZA-Mitteln in der Höhe von ¿ 4.000,- (32,52% des Gesamtprojektvolumens) gefördert.
