The collective "The madmen of Dakar" is born!

The objective is to federate, promote artists and cultural actors by regularly organizing events with specific topics to raise awareness and sensitize.

The objectives are therefore :

- To organize events regularly to promote collective's activities;

- To animate the sites around Ouakam-

Dakar to create to create momentum and space for contemporary art;

- To set-up training workshops;

- To organize exchange meetings between artists to enhance their experience.

August 31 was our premiere, and the audience was there.

One week before the event, artists invested in the exhibition space in front of the Jendalmart artist workshop to paint and tag the esplanade in the street .

This premiere was an exhibition inside the gallery, but above all outside, on the street. All the artists worked on the daily life of the street: highlighting the characters who animate the city of Dakar and try as best they can to manage to live and exist.

An on-site performance thrilled the audience! The 6 artists created a live painting to raise awareness of deforestation and climate change worldwide.

The painting's title “Camazonie” refers to the Amazon, but also, with the C, to Casamance, also affected by deforestation. It is also a tribute to the many victims of the sinking of the boat Le Joola at the center of the work, which calls out: if nothing is done, a terrible catastrophe is on the way!

To be followed in our site.
