Since a week, I returned from Dakar where I was invited by the International Organization of la Francophonie to conduct training on Blender and video post-production during 5 days (from October 27 to 31) for 10 Senegalese audiovisual trainers (see the official announcement).
It was a very intense experience for me, in a country, a continent and a culture that I discovering, not to mention that it was also the first time I trained trainers and not “beginners”.
I had three additional days to visit a little the town and its islands (Gorée, Ngor) and meet the locals (in the broad sense) at Kër Thiossane, a home for multimedia, arts and culture … with his Fablab at two blocks.
They even invited me to a small workshop on Blender and modelling this time. 😉
There would be a lot to tell, but in summary it is always ideal to get to know a country with its inhabitants, and the Senegalese are really welcoming.
A special thank you to Christian Ambaud, Marion Louisgrand Sylla and Modou Ngom. Hope to see you next time!
