When you are used to traveling without any limitation, this period starts to be long. This long time away from Burkina forces me to reflect more on the best ways to delegate. Not an easy task!!!

Message de Abdoulaye Gandema (Bronze sculptor)

Abdoulaye Gandema

After a short stay in France where the pandemic had started, I returned to Burkina with fear in my stomach. When I woke up on March 10, Burkina had just registered its first case. Given the daily behavior of the Burkinabé (hygiene, social cultural grouping and non-compliance with instructions), the worst was to be expected. The confinement, above all, revealed the fragility of the economy. Many people live day to day, more than a month without income is not easy. Life had become difficult for us. It was a great relief when the lifting of the confinement was known. Nowadays life comes back little by little.

Burkina artists depend largely on purchases from expatriates and tourists. This source of income has completely dried up. So we have to find alternatives to sell our creations. It’s up to us to communicate better through social networks.

Students of the LAP are back
