ImagiNation Kër

Presentation


Kër ImagiNation Encompasses the sedentary exhibitions of ImagiNation Afrika hosted at IFAN, the Leopold Sedar Senghor Institute in Dakar and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum in New York. These exhibitions have been the pivot of our early days and continue to help our philosophy of discovery and play.

EXPOSITIONS


June 2012 and April 2014



The exhibition, in partnership with the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, enabled young people in Dakar and Brooklyn to study and exchange views on the contributions of migrants to the communities in which they live, A dynamic phenomenon. Originally organized as part of the Kër ImagiNation sedentary exhibition at IFAN, this exhibition was integrated into our Nomadic Learning program under the name Next stop: Brooklyn / Dakar via Bamako and moved to St. Louis, Thiès And in Louga at the request of the cultural institutions of these regions, where she was visited by nearly 2,000 children.



Mars 2012



This activity has taught children to recognize the constellations they see every day. The scientific aspects behind the beauty of the sky were explained to children using several activities such as creating a kaleidoscope and observing the solar system in a planetarium. Participants realized how immense the universe is, and although they are firmly anchored in the ground, their possibilities are equally immense. This exceptional learning opportunity has taught 131 children to think outside their classroom and see all the beauty that is around them.



December 2011



This exhibition, focusing on the links between people and forms, maths and myths, as well as natural and human spaces, invited children aged 3 to 12 to discover the concept of fractals – that is to say Patterns that repeat indefinitely on multiple scales – and understand how fractal geometry has been integrated into African traditional aesthetics, architecture and knowledge systems. It combined extraordinarily the arts, maths and natural sciences, enabling 375 children from eight schools to learn complex mathematical concepts in a simple and playful way.
