Change The World, Create Something!

 

Badges in hand Team SHAE headed out to hit the roads of Dakar for The World Festival of Black Arts & Culture.  First initiated in 1966 in Dakar with the second edition taking place in Nigeria in 1977, the 3rd edition of the World Festival of Black Arts & Culture is guided by the theme of "African Rennaisance"  and showcases the works of artists, musicians, dancers and filmmakers from throughout Africa and the Diaspora.

 

We spent our first day in Dakar at Biscuiterie the site of the design, photography and visual arts exhibitions and the venue for the Culture Urbaine performances.  There we met up with Oumar Ly, world re-known Senegalese photographer and talked with him about his work and his photography process.  We also had a chance to talk to Tetou Gologo a jewelery designer from Mali whose work was on view at the Arts & Craft exhibition at Biscutaire.  Later that night we attended the Culture Urbaine show featuring a number of Senegalese hip hop artists.
