The foundation contributes to Africa’s development by supporting contemporary artists from the continent or the African diaspora through exhibitions and residencies.

La Boutik is a very colourful shop that takes a fair trade approach to selling a wide selection of African craft and design pieces.

World-renowned lighting manufacturer Blachère opened its Store factory outlet to sell its range of lighting products for retail buyers, suitable for the home and the garden.
