CULTURAL EVENTS

All through the year, the Culture Resort offers free events for anyone who wishes to come by:

Outdoors cinema

Films are shown at the square outside the Culture Resort. Afterwards, we discuss the film.

Storytelling

Local healer and mystic man Odies Thiaw has often astonished us with his beautiful tales, which carry the knowledge and the customs of the Diolas from previous generations to present times.

Educational talks

Experts in diverse topics come to the resort in order to inform and promote awareness of general interest topics, such as responsible sexuality or the importance of garbage collection.

Local crafts

It is such a pleasure to invite some of the best local craftsmen to our resort, and discover everything about beautiful ancient traditions like wood carving or basket manufacturing.

Handicrafts

We collect recycled materials and place them at the disposal of whoever wishes to use them for artistic purposes. The results are then exhibited for sale, with earnings being destined to the village school.

Kids games

Children love them, and they really put themselves into the traditional and educational games that we organize at the square outside the Resort.

Language courses

Every now and then, a visiting teacher comes from abroad and volunteers to teach us his/her language.
