African Cultural Renaissance
The African Cultural Renaissance (ACR) is Africa’s digital platform for cultural heritage, providing online access to a repository of digitized cultural content from cultural institutions across Africa – from books, photos, paintings, artifacts, mixed media, infographics, animations and 3D imaging. Operating as a cultural encyclopedia & publishing company, ACR generates a broad range of Afrocentric/cultural-education content – designed to provide interesting insights into a range of subjects for children, millennial consumers, general Africans and Africans in diaspora, while providing effective advertising solutions for commercial entities.
Who We are
ACR is made possible by the collaboration of several interlinked expert organisations who share the vision of a cultural heritage sector transformed by digital media-technology, and an Africa transformed by culture. Together, we call this ecosystem the African Cultural Renaissance (ACR).
ACR imagines an African cultural/heritage education sector powered by digital media & technology and a continent powered by culture. The impact of ACR is far reaching and strategic by boosting Africans resilient nature, growing economies, increased employment, improved well-being and an increased sense of African identity & unity.
ACR empowers the cultural heritage sector in its digital transformation. We develop digital content, expertise, tools and policies to embrace digital change and encourage partnerships that foster innovation and heritage preservation. We make it easier for people to use cultural heritage for education, research, creation and recreation. Our work contributes to an open, knowledgeable and creative African society.
