  • About us

    Africa Art Lines is a project initiated by Afrikayna, a Moroccan non-profit organization for intercultural exchange, development and cooperation in Africa.

    AFRICA ART LINES started from observing the necessity to rebalance the lake of cultural and art exchanges between African countries in general and between Morocco and the other countries of the continent in particular.

    Our association, since its creation in May 2013, has met several local and regional artists and cultural operators to get diverse experiences and probe the priority levers to enable (for) the promotion of artistic interactions between Morocco and the others African countries.

    The desire to reinforce the actual intercultural willings in Africa by creating a mobility fund dedicated to movements of artists and culture professionals has been encouraged by the operators and practitioners from morocco and continent countries and inspired by multiple experiences, projects and reflections.

    Africa Art Lines, is getting real and functional today thanks to our partners who share our vision and values, conscious that arts and culture are an essential key for the human, social and economic development, in Morocco and in Africa ; and working for a united and intercultural Africa.
