Festival du Sahel Ouvert
Place: Mboumba Podor  (24 Feb 2018 - 27 Feb 2018 )


The Festival A Sahel Ouvert is organized by the public interest association GLOBE, whose slogan is "know your culture". It was born in 2010 from the will of Senegalese and French artists to bring culture to the heart of the populations who have the least access, by associating NGOs specialized in development. In a unique approach in Africa, the Festival A Sahel Ouvert favors rural anchoring and, above all, relies on the involvement of local populations. He defends a vision for the future: culture for development! "The fight against poverty begins there. Put the culture forward. This is how we will meet the challenges of the millennium. A sun is rising. We believe in African youth. We believe in you! " Baaba Maal, guest artist and godfather of the first edition, during his closing concert of the 2010 festival
