Summer Camp for Underprivileged Youth
Jul 26, 2017
In partnership with the Tambacounda Cultural Center, Le Korsa and Thread helped initiate a summer arts camp for handicapped and orphaned children in the region of Tambacounda, which ran from July 7-27.
The camp, which was staffed by local artists and performers, offered the students classes in painting, sculpture, ballet, and the transformation of gourds into musical instruments or bowls. The children also visited and stayed overnight at Thread, giving them a chance to learn about the art and community programs there, as well as to visit the banana growing region and learn more about the local agricultural economy.
