RAW Material Company is a centre for art, knowledge and society. It focuses on curatorial practice, art education, residencies, knowledge production and archiving of art theory and criticism. It works to foster appreciation and growth of artistic and intellectual creativity in Africa. The programme is transdisciplinary and is equally informed by literature, film, architecture, politics, fashion, cuisine and diaspora.

RAW Material Company’s premises are located in Sicap Baobabs and Zone B. RAW Material Company Zone B is a former 1950s residential home of Modernist inspiration in a historic neighbourhood of Dakar. The renovation of this space was a departure point from which they developed research and projects on the role of architecture and urban planning in shaping contemporary societal discourse in African cities.

We look forward to connecting with you!
