Fostering African Expressive Culture
African Artville is a project of the 21st Century African Youth
Movement. This project is bringing together art from various cultures
in Africa and the African Diaspora. African Artville is exploring
the role of the artist in several circumstances. Is the artist an
idealist or a trendsetter? What about a storyteller or a historian?
Can the artists be folkloric or an agitator? These are some of the
questions that African Artville is exploring. Creating a forum for
African expressive art and art of the African Diaspora allows for
answer to these questions. Through African Artville, we will harvest
the many African talents available to stimulate expressive imagination,
and to visually tell Africa’s story for the present and, posterity.
African Artville is the forum for artists to express and convey
their individual artistic experiences, collectively exciting scholarly
attention while at the same time reaching out to a broader audience.
