Burkina Faso: Analysis

Burkina Faso: Analysis

 

Burkina Faso is a leading cultural icon in Africa. The cross-section of cultural activities described above represents only a few among many. From music, dance, sport, art, craft and tourism, Burkina Faso stands out as a major cultural centre.

Year round the country is host to a number of international firms, artists, local commercial figures and cultural ambassadors. The capital, Ouagadougou, is a major hub of activity for those involved in African cinema, hosting a Pan- African film festival every year called FESPACO, the Pan-African film and television Festival of Ouagadougou.

As is demonstrated by the above examples, a majority of cultural diplomacy initiatives are concentrated inside, rather than outside the country, particularly focused on celebrating the diversity within its borders and maintaining cohesion through mutual understanding.
