Rabat, African Capital of Culture (RCAC)

Rabat, African Capital of Culture

Rabat 2022 wants to highlight a range of expressions and lively disciplines on the continent. They are a proof that Africa is endowed with abundant creativity. They open up the fields of possibilities, “draw an African utopia” and revolve around unifying projects and events.

In 2022, Rabat is the first African city to wear the colors of the African Capitals of Culture.  Rabat is the perfect place to host this continental event, elaborating a reference model for the development of this program.

Why is Rabat designated First African Capital of Culture?

Since returning to the African Union in 2016, Morocco is back to its Africanity. Rabat, the capital of the Kingdom, carries all the resources to host such a project: a city of art and history, many tourist infrastructures, a historic crossroad between North and South, large cultural and human diversity, international events, etc.

Therefore, Rabat has all the assets to proudly carry the objectives of the African Capitals of Culture in 2022.
