Project description

The cultural association Koumakan was founded in Conakry in 2017 to promote creativity as a driving force for development. Koumakan is one of Guinea’s most dynamic cultural associations, with over 10 years of experience in the cultural sector!
The project aims to give Guinean school pupils a grounding in their culture by helping them learn about and practise storytelling. It raises awareness among teachers about the role of storytelling in the transmission of culture and values, and gives pupils a greater understanding of Guinea’s oral tradition, as well as a renewed interest in reading.
