As part of its cultural heritage promotion activities, UNESCO will install a photo exhibition on the 7 World Heritage sites in Senegal at the Musée Théodore Monod d'art africain and on the grids of the University Cheickh Anta Diop from 13 April to 13 May 2017. The new mobile app "VUE d'Afrique" will also be launch during this event.
This event will be an opportunity to present "VUE (Outstanding Universal Value) of Africa", a free mobile app developed by the UNESCO Dakar Office in 2016. The app aims at allowing the general public, and more particularly young Senegalese, to discover their cultural heritage in an original way through beautiful images. This playful, educational and easy to use app will hopefully be an original way to involve young people in the promotion of its magnificent heritage and to get them to appropriate it.
