More than any other product, culture reflects a people’s uniqueness, value and heritage. Strengthening culture sectors builds social capital and reinforces identities, as well as generating trade and business opportunities. 

The EFI Culture Programme showcases creativity and talent in cultural sectors like art, photography, cinema and music, in seven dynamic countries: Cote d’Ivoire, Eritrea, Mali, Uganda, Iran, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. EFI works together with leading private sector players to strengthen culture sectors and increase cultural exports. 

This programme is the result of a collaboration with EFI’s Identity Building and Business Sharing Initiative, funded by the European Union (EU).
