ARTifariti is an appointment with artistic practices as a tool to vindicate Human rights; the right of the people to their land, their culture, their roots and their freedom. It is an annual encounter of public art to reflect on creation, and society, and a point of contact for artists interested in the capacity of art to question and transform the reality. ARTifariti wants to promote intercultural relations, fomenting the interchange of experiences and skills between local artists and international artists from other parts of the world; to contribute to the international diffusion of the Sahrawi reality, causing a reflection from the world of Art and the Culture through direct knowledge, and promote the development of these people through their cultural patrimony.

APS focuses on printmaking and its allied outreach programmes to build capacity of people to reach self-actualisation and make a difference in society. APS was founded in by Kim Berman and the late Nhlanhla Xaba to ‘reflect the spirit of a healthy democracy’ and the non-racial ideals expressed in the new constitution. Printmaking was seen as a counter force to the suspicion and division left from the apartheid years and, as a democratic medium, it was considered to be especially appropriate in helping to build a truly egalitarian society.
The Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation was founded in 2003 on the principle that education for sustainability is essential for today’s K-12 students. Education for sustainability is a teaching methodology that develops critical thinking skills necessary to understand complex, interconnected issues. Students today face unprecedented challenges and an imperative to balance economic, social and environmental problems. They need to feel inspired and be prepared to innovate new solutions. CELF programs use real-world problem solving to prepare students with the holistic thinking skills and motivation to become agents of change for a healthier, more stable and sustainable future.

Film is a powerful means to convey a story, educate or mobilize around an issue. For Sahrawi refugees, the ability to make films about their lives and the challenges they face is an empowering experience, a chance to tell their stories in their own words. The Abidin Kaid Saleh Audiovisual School opened for classes in 2011 with a main mission: to train young Sahrawi refugees in film and video production so that they can portray their lives, address critical issues and empower their communities. These young people are becoming the first generation of Sahrawi filmmakers. The school was built in 2010 with the support of Spanish filmmakers who identified the need among young Sahrawi refugees for year-round media training. It is located in the Bojador camp and provides full board so that students from all the camps can attend throughout the year. In the first two years, Sahrawi women made up about 85% of the school’s student body. This makeup reflects women’s key role in Sahrawi society: women and girls built the refugee camps and continue to play a critical role in Sahrawi life, occupying leadership positions in Sahrawi politics, health, education and culture.
