CONCLUSION OF THE PILOT PROJECT:
Women in Fishery in Senegal - Between Tradition and Modernity - At the roots of Emigration
Raise awareness of a deeper understanding of the role of women in fishery in their society through their relationship to the sacred - together with the traditional role in their daily work - in comparison with current working conditions - in their culture threatened by the fishing crisis, the globalization and not least the migration.
Next Project in
BUILDING A BRIDGE BETWEEN AFRICA AND EUROPE:
- For on-site sustainability and the reduction of emigration
- In collaboration with migrants from West Africa who live in Europe and represent here their culture in an exemplary way
IN COOPERATION WITH:
- Gabin Dabiré, composer, singer and poet, from Burkina Faso, is living in Italy for decades.
He was defined by Herbie Hancock as "the new synthesis of African music".
- Moustapha Dembélé, composer and musician, from a traditional ‘Griot’ family,
lives between Mali and Italy.
Visual studies and biographical notes of Dabiré and Dembélé:
We believe that from the deep communication of the cultural roots of African emigrants more respect could be generated in an exemplary way towards people of a different cultural origin. Too often there is substantial prejudice about the "poor" African continent - battered by slavery, colonialism and civil wars - by transferring these aspects to the spiritual and cultural values of African society.
