Launched in 2021 by Agence Française de Développement (AFD), the Metis fund promotes better integration of the arts and culture into official development assistance. This financial mechanism allows artists, primarily from countries in which AFD operates, to invest in development projects supported by the Agency. It is aimed at artists who want to support these projects, who recognize their technical dimension and who, in addition, offer to give them an emotional dimension essential to their effectiveness.

Via Metis, local artists create a dialogue between arts and development: their artistic expressions are nourished by the realities of the territories they approach, their inhabitants and their challenges. Through their interventions, they testify, question, give meaning, promote exchanges and help build new common horizons.
