Located in Accra, Ghana, LOATAD (Library Of Africa and The African Diaspora) is a library dedicated to championing and preserving the work of writers from Africa and the diaspora from the late 19th century to the present day. One of its flagship projects is the organisation of writing residencies aimed at writers of all levels from 16 West African countries.

The 2023 session will welcome a total of 12 writers split into one-month residency periods. A third of the places will be reserved for local Ghanaian writers, and women will represent half of participants, as will those aged under 35. During this residency, each writer will have to work on a written project set to be published at the end of the year.

The aim is to give writers the time, space and resources they need to work on a long-term project, thereby boosting their skills and confidence and, above all, helping them to create a network in the sphere of literature.

The project aims to make the digital arts an effective vector of cohesion, development and greater community spirit.

The project “Digital'Art, Pratiqu'Art au Bénin” aims to boost artists’ artistic and managerial knowledge and skills in order to offer quality services and reach populations without regular access to such services.

Since 2009, the project by the Windepkpe association has centred around preserving Benin’s textile and clothing heritage. The ultimate goal is to showcase Benin’s artistic potential, preserve its heritage, share its expertise and make its culture a real driver for economic and social development.

To showcase this rich textile heritage, the association organises the “Koubourou Fashion Days”, an event that highlights Beninese woven pagnes or wrappers, which are emblematic of the country’s textile traditions.

This Conservatory is a cultural industry in its own right and meets a dual objective: to help the people of Benin reclaim ownership of their textile and clothing heritage through the Museum of Textile Art and encourage reproduction and sales through the craft space, to ensure that these cultural treasures are never forgotten.
