From 1 June to 21 June, PARM and its partners will organize the exhibition PARM Art Exhibition “FOOD HEROES : Les héros de la sécurité alimentaire et de l’agriculture durable”, within the framework of the 2022 Dak’Art, in the beatiful Botanical Garden of Cheick Anta Diop University (UCAD).
On the occasion of World Food Day and the International Day of Rural Women in October 2021, the Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) launched the digital campaign #parmartchallenge which called more than one hundred artists from Africa and the diaspora to transform portraits of rural women and men in Africa into works of art by highlighting these actors in the shadows of our food security.
Through this artistic journey, PARM and its partners want to celebrate rural women and men who, every day, face many risks to produce the food we have on our plates and raise awareness of the urgency of building the capacity adaptation to risks in agriculture in order to build sustainable and resilient agri-food systems.
This exhibition is the result of the collaboration with the International Fund for the Development of Agriculture (IFAD) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Equipment (MAER) of Senegal with the support of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), the French Development Agency (AFD) and the European Commission (EC).
