Bandjoun Station workshop
Educational workshop at Grand Palais
with Barthélémy Toguo and Lycée Maximilien Vox, COP21, 2015.
Barthélémy Toguo has created Bandjoun Station, an integrated artist residency, museum and farm in his native Cameroon that links art and sustainable agriculture. Local youth and foreign guests come together to learn artistic, environmental, agricultural, and social practices that promote self-sufficiency and sustainable farming in view of the agricultural crisis and climate change.
ARTPORT_making waves presented a screening of the documentary “Bandjoun Station” by Thierry Spitzer and workshops by Toguo, where he talked about his project, about sustainable and environmental responsibility, about possible local solutions and where he created a collective artwork with students from the Lycée Maximilien Vox Paris commissioned by ARTPORT_making waves.
