Project: ART EXHIBITION

EDP is planning a complementary and innovative new way of keeping the memory of the victims alive. 

This will be done by organizing exhibitions of art pieces around stories of the victims and produced by volunteers 'artists.

The artists have been tasked to come up with a piece of art each (painting) created by them and inspired by pictures and stories of victims.

The volunteers are all students at Ecole Supérieure d'Arts et de Design Marseille-Méditérannée. Their team leader handpicked volunteers who was in the same age group as majority of the victims.

He also picked people from different backgrounds (5 nationalities) to ensure that the artwork would be diverse. The work is incredibly unique and just beautiful.

The plan is to work with the Burundian diaspora to organize exhibitions in some capital cities of the world with those pieces with the aim of raising awareness of what is going on in Burundi.

The exhibition will start in New York on Thursday the 28th of April at the Chinatown soup 5pm, this week will commemorate one year since the beginning of the demonstrations against Pierre Nkurunziza's 3rd term.

The idea is to have the Lead Artist and the artworks travel all around the world to major capital cities to raise awareness about the Burundi crisis.

After New-York, would like to organize an exhibition in the following cities: 
1)Paris 
2)Brussels 
3)Rome
4)Oslo
5)Montreal
6)Toronto
7)Nairobi
8)Arusha
9)Johannesburg
10) Tokyo

To bring this project to life we need your donations!! 

Background:
'Enfants Du Pays' (EDP) is a project initiated by young Burundians from different walks of life. They came together as the demonstrations against the 3rd term mandate of the president were violently repressed and the political crisis entered a new phase.

These young citizens are appalled by the gravity of the crisis, and especially the hard price that is being paid by their fellow young compatriots, victims of the crisis.

EDP acts as a voice. A voice of the souls murdered in the hands of Burundi security forces and/or armed forces. It is a project that aims at lending a voice to their loved ones to allow their stories to be known and restore their dignity in the eyes of the world.

These deaths are not mere numbers, statistics or worthless, they are individuals with names, families, and stories.
