Mapping Culture

Introducing a brand new We Are Museums project

In 2019, we will be debuting our first cultural mapping project to assess the impact of cultural venues across the African continent.

Mapping Culture #Africa edition references and classifies museums, centres, residencies and third places in an innovative way:

not only focused collections and existing assets, equally concerned with accessibility, connectivity, and its human and social contribution to an ecosystem.


We Are Museums cultural mapping will be elaborated through the actors of each creative ecosystem in a ‘regionalised approach’.

The mapping will come equipped with an open digital tool allowing the public to look at cultural networks in each region.

Each year, the most notable innovators of each region will be shortlisted and presented in a booklet.
