About

Kafountine Lino Printing was established in December 2013 in a remote fishing village in the south west of Senegal as a cooperative venture between artist printmakers in the UK and Senegal. The project aims to recognise and support artists who live in the village and to promote their work to a wider audience.

In addition, the project raises funding through the sale of original art work and other means to help develop a sustainable income and creative arts workshop in the village and to enable artists to pass on their skills to young people.

All proceeds from the sale of prints go directly to the artists. There are currently three Senegal-based artists working in the group – Moussa Camara, Dembo Fixer and Ebou Touray, along with Trevor Pollard who shares his time between Sheffield and Kafountine.

We want to raise £2000 to purchase and ship a professional lino printing press plus a stock of lino out to Senegal. This will mean that the artists have to means to work throughout the year developing their work along with the flexibility that the press provides for extending the range of techniques. The prints then get brought back to the UK for subsequent sale.

Risks and challenges

The pilot year has helped us in the initial setting up of the project. However, in a project of this type, the risks are mainly down to the quality and saleability of the lino prints produced.
