The conference programme included 4 keynote addresses, 2 panel discussions and roundtable discussions on 10 thematic areas, including the UNESCO Conventionon the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and its relevance to the African creative economy. From the keynote presentation by Joy Mboya (Executive Director of the GoDown Arts Centre, Kenya), I learnt, for the first time, the extent to which the global economic meltdown had impacted the creative industries.

As the main aim of the project is to tackle misconceptions, stereotypes and dogmas surrounding the knowledge of life in Africa, it was indeed gratifying to experience Tchad, Sudan and Addis Ababa in a different light. To use Khartoum, Sudan as an example, what we experienced was far from what we know about Sudan in the media.

I participate din all the programmes organized by Durban FilmMart with financiers, film directors, producers, scriptwriters, etc. from Zanzibar, Tanzania, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, Germany, Japan, etc. My observation and contribution to this discussion was to inform people about the Ethiopian film industry, which, in my experience and in contrast to other developing coutnries, is driven by local demand for entertainment rather than by development agency-funded or produced informational / educational film productions (documentaries).

The event Rencontres Australes Imaitsoanala (RAI), held on the 6th of August in Ambohimangakely, was definitely a highlight. This event, organised by myself, Cecil Bidaud, Tahina Ratroakavirony, Meghan Judge and Laurent Lafuma, was experimental and ambitious in nature. It gained further momentum as local artists got involved and resulted in an afternoon/evening of presentations of site-specific art installations, dance and circus performances, paintings, projections and music.

Ma rencontre avec Germaine Acogny m'a fait un choc parce que pour moi elle est un exemple vivant de ce que je veux accomplir dans ma vie professionnelle. Durant le stage, les moments les plus forts pour moi étaient les cours de danses traditionnelles des différents pays présents lors du stage; le fait de partager et de découvrir que toutes les traditions africaines ont plus ou moins la même histoire.
