Supporting a vital national institution

© Ecole de Peinture de Poto-Poto

The Poto-Poto painting school in Brazzaville is internationally renowned for having trained numerous Congolese and other African painters such as Marcel Goten and Remy Mongo-Etsion.

The school has launched an ambitious documentation project that is seeing the 60-year-old institution develop a valuable database of works by artists of the school. As part of the same project, the school has conducted ICT training for artists.

The training covered managing their professional networks and promoting their works through social media. These new skills will enable the artists to connect with others and to gain access to wider markets for their work.
