Culture

version française | deutsche Version

In the Rwandese society the traditional culture of the potter community is not valorised and even threatened to disappear.

In order to preserve and to valorise the potters’ culture COPORWA does the following activities: Research, documentation and inventory of the cultural diversity of the potters.  Besides we already have begun to generate income through the cultural and artistic heritage of the potters by modernizing pottery and traditional medicine and by creating and reinforcing dancing and theatre troupes.

And COPORWA produces reports and documentary films about the potter culture in Rwanda to present it to the wide public.
