The aim of Centers of Learning for Photography in Africa is to contribute to the professionalisation of photography on the African continent by forming a strong educational resource network. The network of independent, well-equipped and self-sustainable training structures will facilitate training initiatives’ access to tools and content relating to curriculum-development, teaching methods, infrastructure and equipment.

The Goethe-Institut’s role of an incubator, entails providing financial, intellectual and infrastructural support during the first project phase. Such support mainly consists of designing, organizing and hosting training workshops and meetings in close collaboration with its main partner, the Market Photo Workshop. It also entails facilitating networking and exchange between learning institutions, educators and other practitioners in the field as well as conducting research on educational resources available online and offline, and improving their accessibility.

The project collective consists of representatives for photography training structures from across the continent and the African Diaspora, incl. Egypt, Sudan, Nigeria, South Africa and Germany.
