Tanzania: EU Promotes Tanzania's Cultural Heritage

The 10th symposium on culture tourism and economic development wrapped up on Tuesday after two days of discussion and sharing about the arts and culture industry in the country. The forum is part of a wider initiative by the European Union to support cultural heritage and creative industries in the country. Nonetheless, under the EDF Support to Culture Programme , the EU has provided EUR 10 million for a range of initiatives, 18 of which were chosen to present at the forum which took place at the National Museum of House and Culture in Dar es Salaam. "The EU has funded these projects with the aim of encouraging sustainability and enabling the project creators to support other Tanzanian's with jobs and livelihoods, "says Oliver Coupleux, Head of Section, Economics and Governance at the EU delegation to Tanzania. Projects such as Heritage preservation in Zanzibar which is an exhibit of a former slave trade market site as well as the preservation of Christ Church Cathedral are testament to this. Alexa du Plessis, Programme Officer for the Economics and Governance Section at the Delegation of the EU to Tanzani said that, Tanzania-although leading in the tourism sector- still has a long way to go in building a strong arts and culture industry.
