2021 African Union: What to expect as the baton passes to the next chair
The African Union will run the year 2021 under the theme: Arts, Culture, and Heritage: Levers for Building the Africa We Want. The Theme’s focus is on the arts and creative industry’s transformative power.
This is in line with the theme of the United Nations. The year 2021 had been declared by the UN as the year of the creative industry. This comes in recognition of the power of the arts to bring people together and the earning potential within this industry.
The latest African Union summit held on saw a change at the helm of Africa’s coordinating organ. Replacing the South African president as the AU chair, the leader of the Democratic Republic of Congo will take over as the new chair of the African Union.
