THE AFRICAN DREAM
PRESENTS THE AFRO PEPITES SHOW
THE THREE 2021 PEPITES
10th edition of the Selections of the African Dream!
The great discoveries identified by the committee and the web users!
The AFRO PEPITES SHOW is the 1st Arts Market online (e-Arts Market)
We have widened our communication networks and “agitated” the artists on the Internet and in the field during the Tour of Africa to harvest a new artistic bunch dedicated to:
- Professionals of culture willing to highlight new talents (media, managers, producers, publishers, organizers, distributors, booking agencies…)
- Internet users interested in discovering new cultural trends.
This year the Listeners’ committee has discovered 214 projects.
It has short-listed 10 projects which have made a difference thanks to their originality, their quality and/or their commitments. Then, Internet users voted to support their favourite project!
| Thank you all for your participation |
| ENJOY THE DISCOVERIES AND SPREAD THE WORD |
THE NEXT CASTING will mark the 11th edition!
Next registrations from 31/03/2021.
