Project description

Specialising in training in the travel and tourism sector, ITTOG has been involved in numerous artistic and cultural projects since its creation in 2008, with a view to raising awareness of sustainable development and responsible tourism among its students.

Due to the absence of an art school in the Gambia, the development of the sector is limited. The ITTOG project therefore proposes to improve the training, employability and entrepreneurship of young performing artists. Through this project, ITTOG is committed to training young talent (with the support of the Senegalese National School of Arts), creating an art café and a resource centre for discussions, research and sale of works. It will support the creation of new cultural dances, produce videos of performances and help distribute them for wider recognition.
