Doual'art
Douala, Cameroon
The non-profit doual'art is based on the concept that artistic expression is a mechanism for development and for the exploration of cultural and urban identity. The organisation has invited artists to produce a series of urban interventions in various neighbourhoods in Douala, which often involve local populations and encourage social responsibility. The interventions include a fresco on HIV-AIDS prevention; urban designs in 30 historical sites by the historian Blaise Ndjehoya and artist Sandrine Dole; Joseph Francis Sumegne's monumental sculpture, ‘The New Liberty’, which is placed on a roundabout; a bridge and water pump in Bessengue; and a treasury box of messages for the year 2050 by 200 schoolchildren.
