PHOTO CONTEST TO PROMOTE EMERGING AFRICAN CREATION
Alliances Foundation continues its support for contemporary African creation through the Lcc Program, a biannual photo competition designed to promote emerging African photography.
With this unprecedented program, the foundation intends to provide a strong impetus to African photographic creation by means of a coherent policy of cultural sponsorship based on an alternative approach to that of the art market. To that end, the Lcc Program highlights and presents to the public works by an emerging photographer, accompanying them in the diffusion of their creative process.
Created in 2010, Alliances Foundation is a non-profit organisation which aim is to assist in the cultural development of the Kingdom of Morocco with the initiation of flagship projects, and with the support of specialist networks.
Through the implementation of a museum project (MACAAL), support programs for emerging African photography (Lcc Program), and efforts to broaden awareness of contemporary art (Passerelles, or Pathways), Alliances Foundation fosters access to culture for a wider audience. The foundation champions the idea that art should be accessible to all by extending a significant cultural outreach to people of all social backgrounds, and so, by means of a rigorous and comprehensive approach, raising the profile of contemporary Moroccan and African art.
