Imagine Dakar: The City by its Child Citizens

"IMAGINER DAKAR : LA VILLE PAR SES

ENFANTS CITOYENS" is an exhibition

made by and for children in Dakar. The

exhibition was launched during the 7th edition

of the Partcours Festival.

This multimedia exhibition offered visitors the

opportunity to experience Dakar from the

perspective of its youngest citizens - children.

The exhibition included two interactive spaces;

the first - a mini city where children and adults

were invited to immerse themselves in an

exciting experience of reconstructing their city

and the second - photos and videos taken by

the children as a critical reflection about their

city.

The exhibition is a result of a two month

collaboration with children from Yoff, where

Ker Imagination is based. For two months, 30

children from Yoff benefited from 15

workshops on the topics of multimedia, city

planning and architecture, leading critical

conversations about their city, neighbourhood

and the efficiency of public services. Among

the issues children raised and explored were:

the absence of of public (play) spaces, trash

and waste problems and safety in their

neighbourhood. These issues were then more

thoroughly explored by the children through

photography, video, and interviews with family

members and neighbours. In order to truly

allow the visitors to view the city from a child’s

perspective, the children built 3 periscopes that

adults could use to view the exhibition from

the average height of a child ages 3, 7 and 11.
