The book entitled ” Culture in the future, perspectives for the development of the Congolese cultural and creative sector” by Professor Ribio Nzeza, doctor in social communication at the Catholic University in Congo (UCC), was baptized on Sunday January 24, 2021.
It was on the sidelines of the African and Afro-descendant day and the fifteenth anniversary of the adoption of the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance.
This book, published in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, returns to the concerns of the cultural sector so much vaunted but often forgotten in the DRC, according to its author. In his book, Ribio Nzeza Bunketi therefore offers policy and action perspectives to be implemented after the pandemic.
One of the chapters of this book was devoted to the 2021 theme chosen by the African Union (AU) on the sidelines of the said celebration. It is about ” arts, culture and heritage: levers to build the Africa we want “, in which the author traces the route. This book also identifies the challenges and issues that the DRC must consider during its presidency of the AU.
Another chapter of the same book mentions the International Year of the Creative Economy for Sustainable Development proclaimed by the United Nations.
It should be noted that the doctor in social communication, Ribio Nzeza Bunketi Buse, also holds a master’s degree in management of cultural industries from Senghor University in Alexandria and a certificate in business international relations and the political Economy.
He is a professor at UCC and his previous book is entitled: ” Creativity at the heart of diversity: economic impact of Covid-19 on the cultural and creative sector in the Democratic Republic of the Congo “. This book was published in June 2021.
