Project description

Ankata means “forward” in Dioula. Located in Bobo-Dioulasso, this associative space was designed and built as a creative laboratory, a crossroads of social and civic links, a place to work and live, to experiment with all possibilities, an exhortation to move forward and reinvent one’s environment.

Africa SIMPLY THE BEST and ANKATA COACHING function as a platform for the promotion of young creators in the performing arts, with an affirmed approach of knowledge sharing. The first stage of this programme consists of identifying contemporary African talent, training them and bringing them together on the same stage, with a view to their promotion and positioning at the forefront of the performing arts.
