The founders of the foundation have a rich background in the arts and will continue to use their skills and experience to support the development of the arts curriculum, especially from where the gap in training skills has been identified i.e year nine to degree level. We are approaching this quest in three ways:
Building our partnership work with the National Centre for Arts and Culture
Building our partnership work with the University of The Gambia
Strengthening the skills and facilitation experience of local artist
Developing the building offered by St Peters Technical Secondary School, into an Arts and Informal Education Learning Centre
Sourcing artists and facilitating the sharing of ideas and practice
Working with experienced local artists to develop visual arts projects in the community
