SOLD TO BENEFIT AMERICAN FRIENDS OF LE KORSA AND THREAD: ARTIST RESIDENCY AND CULTURAL CENTER
Le Korsa is a non-profit organization that offers grants to deserving institutions and individuals in Senegal, empowering them to increase access to medical care, education, and the arts (aflk.org). Thread, its latest venture, is dedicated to using art as a means of developing linkages between rural Senegal and other parts of the globe (thread-senegal.org). We believe that art is the means of development—both economically and culturally, in Senegal and abroad.
