• the appetite that exists amongst creatives to collaborate either locally or with other creatives in SSA or the UK
• the different art spaces that exist in Rwanda for creatives to showcase their art
• the different arts organizations currently operating in Rwanda and the work that they do
• opportunities that are available to creatives from minority groups (including women, and those with disabilities) to be able to create art and collaborate with other creatives
• Provide programme approach, design and delivery recommendations which look towards connected and complementary programme delivery in Rwanda including:
a) The target groups who have the greatest potential to benefit from cultural engagement (across creative economy, cultural exchange)
b) Opportunities for synergies with further British Council initiatives
c) The potential to support development and strengthening of local capacities, networks.
d) Opportunities for taking a mutually beneficial cultural relations approach with the UK sector to support and strengthen local infrastructure alongside international collaboration
