As per Arterial Network’s policy, all events are to be held on rotation. For this reason, countries in East Africa are not eligible to apply since the first edition of the African Creative Economy Conference
last year was held in East Africa, Kenya.
The conference will coincide with the Arterial Network General Council meeting. It is expected that the two events combined will attract between 150 and 200 international delegates including Arterial Network Chapter members, funders and creative economy experts. Hosting the event will provide an international spotlight and networking platforms to the host organization and country.
The selected organization, if successful, should be legally and financially able to be contracted by Arterial Network to host the conference and establish a Planning Committee. The contracted organization will be responsible for all local arrangements, including programming, venue selection, catering, promotion and marketing, social events, conference documentation and reporting, soliciting and selecting exhibitors, assisting speakers and delegates with visa or travel questions.
