Jenny features on the UNESCO Convention 2005’s new promotional video

During UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Committee of the Convention 2005 on December 15th 2016, the Section on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions presented a recently produced short film on the SIDA funded project “Enhancing fundamental freedoms through the promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions”, delivered in 12 countries (Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Colombia, Cuba, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Morocco, Senegal, Rwanda, Tunisia, Vietnam, Zimbabwe).

This 8’ video, realized in close cooperation with the UNESCO Offices in Addis Ababa, Dakar, Habana, Hanoi, Harare, Jakarta, Nairobi, Phnom Penh, Quito and Rabat, captures precious testimonies of governmental and civil society actors engaged in policy-making and monitoring processes and closely involved in activities supporting the principles and objectives of the 2005 Convention on the promotion and protection of the diversity of cultural expressions.

From 2015 to 2017, the 2005 Convention Secretariat is implementing, with the support of the Government of Sweden, a project that intends to build capacities for participatory policy monitoring and reporting, a process in which Jenny Mbaye participated as an expert through a mission of capacity-building for policy monitoring in Rwanda in May and September 2016. The project’s overarching goal is to enhance human and institutional capabilities in developing countries in ways that enable them to improve their systems of governance for culture.
