Directory of African Cultural Administration Training Centres Online

In cooperation with UNESCO and ENCATC (European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres), OCPA has developed a regional directory of African training centres and institutions existing throughout the continent in the field of cultural policy, administration and management as well as cultural development.

The objective of the project is to collect the information existing in this field and make accessible on-line, free of charge.
