The AWA program has a double objective, namely:

The third call for projects called « Fund for the promotion of West African cultures » aims to provide beneficiaries with a maximum grant of €25,000 over 1 year to promote the cultural and creative content of West Africa, by supporting creation and production, image education and the development of means of dissemination and distribution (physical and digital) of cultural goods.

This call for projects aroused real interest among West African cultural operators in view of the very high quality of the responses and the mobilization of 176 applications from fifteen (15) of the sixteen (16) countries in the region.

The choice of the 35 winners was entrusted to an international jury composed of West African experts chosen for their expertise and their perfect knowledge of the region.

This jury accompanied by the coordinators of the AWA project met on May 13, 2022 for its deliberation in the presence of observers from the European Commission and the ACP-EU Culture Technical Assistance Unit. During this final session, the 35 laureates including 16 in performing arts, 4 in visual arts, 5 in multimedia, 3 in literature, 3 in heritage, 3 in cinema and 1 in fashion were confirmed.
