For the development of art and culture
Born from the incredible cultural, social, economic and tourism momentum generated in recent years by the advent of the Festival sur le Niger in Ségou and initiatives that are linked to it, the Foundation Festival sur le Niger aims to gather energies and bring together some expertise for the development and improvement of the professions of art and culture in Mali and Africa.
It was established in August 2009 in order to capitalize on and sustain the achievements of the Festival sur le Niger in order to further contribute to the promotion of culture, heritage preservation, promotion of the local economy of the region, the structuring of the cultural sector, cultural production and the decentralization of cultural life. It is an initiative of the organizers of the festival and several cultural and tourism actors of Ségou.
