A wealth of experiences and delights

Yoff Artists’ Village (also known as Dakar Arts Village)

This is African art in its best light. Its delightful setting and surroundings make it a haven of peace and tranquillity, ideal for reflection and creation. The Arts Village, a research and creation centre, attracts gallery owners, museum curators, architects, educated individuals, students seeking dissertation material, journalists, politicians and tourists.

The Arts Village is made up of 52 workshops. All the visual arts are represented (painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, video, installation art, etc.). The Village also boasts a 300 m2 gallery (one of the best exhibition centres in Dakar) and exhibitions are held there all year round.

The village’s bar/restaurant provides a quality service in a very pleasant setting and regularly organises themed talks, conferences, conventions, film projections followed by debates, cultural evenings, concerts and beautiful modern and traditional musical evenings.

If you like new, original and very creative art, don’t miss this address. You’ll be able to buy amazing works at reasonable prices. The workshop of the well-known Senegalese sculptor Ousmane Sow is also close to Dakar Arts Village.
