International cultural cooperation
The Union's action to promote the visual arts is not confined to its own territory.
Most of the partnership agreements with third countries contain a cultural element.
Under the Cotonou partnership, the Union helps to finance many events in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean in the plastic arts field.
For example, it supports the Dakar Biennial Arts Festival and the Bamako Photography Biennial, as well as more modest but highly symbolic operations such as an exhibition of paintings by Dominican and Haitian artists, and a display of works by three Angolan, South African and Cuban visual artists, in Angola.
