Conclusion of the Pilot Project:
Collective Memory - Collective Consciousness - Between tradition and modernity
The Pilot Project is dedicated to the promotion of the cultural heritage of traditional fishing communities in West-Africa and especially to women in fisheries and their role in society.
It was prepared on-site in 2010, started in June and October 2011 and has as a priority the creation of a documentary database.
This phase includes a multi-media publication and a documentary, for the appreciation of the various actors who live the tension between tradition and modernity, and have an exemplary role in the culture of fishing communities. Better understand their historical and cultural background will identify new paths of cooperation for sustainable living and recreation options for the youth.
