The program examines the complex social, economic, and political issues Senegal faces and takes a critical approach to Senegalese artistic and cultural forms — from traditional aesthetic expressions to modern notions of cosmopolitanism/afropolitanism and urban identities realized in new artistic formats such as hip-hop, street art, and graffiti. You will not only learn a variety of West African art forms and what they represent but also to create and perform them. Please visit our website for more information.
