Screening of cultural production

Project description

The Association Des Livres Pour Tous (DLPT), created in 2008 in Paris by Marguerite Abouet, author of the successful comic strip “Aya de Yopougon”, has as its main objective to make books more accessible to young people by creating libraries in neighbourhoods and villages in Africa.

“L’Afrique en conte” is an innovative project aimed at collecting, producing and broadcasting radio plays based on heritage tales and contemporary imagination. The aim is to produce a catalogue of programmes, audio books and podcasts for libraries, schools, cultural centres and radio stations in Côte d’Ivoire and elsewhere. The creation of this catalogue is made possible thanks to the “Radiobox”, a portable mobile studio set up in libraries in Abidjan, and to the training of librarians in its use.
