  • Description

    Description

    I’m the artistic director of an annual international music and dance festival, and we can often welcome assisting interns on the management side of the team.

    With my friend Anna we also run a studio for yoga & healing arts which is growing into being able to welcome some helpful souls. Guest yoga teachers are especially welcome to reach-out.

    Beyond a healthy savvy for culture, no experience is necessary. French or Wolof skills is a plus. Most importantly, be inspired & open-hearted toward all facets of Dakar creative culture : ) Great if you're already in town and "initiated" a bit.

    When the work is not "in the field", we could really use someone with video editing talent, as we have many videos of our shows over the years which people ask about, just sitting in a hard drive...

    If any of this resonates, please send us an introduction, and we can provide you with our website and further presentation. Cheers

    Update: Our annual festival proper is presently on hold, due to the passing of our godfather and primary collaborator, UNESCO "Living Human Treasure" Doudou [full name censored], just after our last edition celebrating his 85th birthday. We do still have smaller concerts and workshops ongoing throughout the year.

    One room in our 3-bedroom modern flat with a big salon & balcony. In a guarded complex with a green courtyard. The complex community is a nice mix of internationals and Senegalese, in tranquil Ouakam, Cite Asecna. Our place is walking distance to beautiful beaches (as well as the Monument of the African Renaissance and the Mamelles Lighthouse - see photos). A short taxi-ride away is Almadies, which is a hotspot of surfing & nightlife.
