The African Cultural Policy Network (ACPN) is an on-line network initiated by Mike van Graan (South Africa) and Aadel Essaadani (Morocco) in June 2017. Both were part of various national and regional, continental bodies.

With numerous – and rapid – developments in the international cultural policy arena, there is a need to have an informed, proactive and bold African voice in the arena of cultural policy and advocacy.

The African Cultural Policy Network will work with, and seek to complement other actors in the African creative space.
