The Dak’Art 2022 Biennale will bear the mark of the diversity of crafts with a strong creative integration of new technologies. In collaboration with the National School of Arts, public and/or private universities, the program gives pride of place to young audiences’ appreciation of artistic productions through collaborations with schools. Mediation workshops dedicated to children will be set up on the erstwhile Palais de Justice site in collaboration with the Ministry of National Education. In addition, the Dakar Biennale’s mediators will be trained to help visitors find their way around the city and the exhibitions. Mediators will be selected based on a call for applications to educational institutions.


The Biennale village will be located in the erstwhile Palais de Justice. It constitutes a rallying point for insiders as well as lay people, and is intended to be a space for leveraging artistic heritage as well as culinary know-how and discovery for music lovers. Open to young people from urban cultures and to a rich musical programming, the connected village offers places to live as well as meet with dedicated relaxation areas (chairs, tables, bars, etc.), and free Wi-Fi access.
