INTRODUCTION NOTE

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Nowadays, the cultural actors have a more and more sharp conscience of the issues that represent the development of the exchanges and the organisation of sector within their region, strong of 16 countries.  Thus, the cultural actors – whoever they are: public cultural organisms, civil society organisations (particularly numerous in this sector), or private structures – take many initiatives aiming to develop exchanges and to organise itself at regional level, becoming then a civil cultural society active and effective. 

In Africa, the necessity to work at regional level has been long time hidden by aimed wider international goals.  The cultural actors privileged the development of relations with the North.  Today, they have a more and more sharp conscience of the issues that represent the development of the exchanges and the organisation of sector within their region. 

 The organisation of sector and the development of exchanges within the region are conditions to assure a better exploitation and a sharing of resources existing, to exchange experiences, to stimulate creativity, to widen the opportunities, in one word to allow a better economy of culture at regional level. 

 The Regional Funds for the Promotion of Cooperation and Cultural Exchanges in West Africa has for mission to contribute to the implementation of conditions for a better organisation of the sector at regional level.
