Petit Musée, Conakry, Guinea 

A remarkable and unique place for a course that is no less. After a break for renovation in early 2016, activities resumed after the rainy season.

“Le Petit Musée is a cultural platform created by Fifi Tam’sir (who has not directed the museum since 2011), actress, director, close associate of Jean Rouch, who, together with the Peter Brook team, toured The world of mythical Mahabarata is already a lot but that’s not all.Fifi continued its momentum by throwing bridges between Paris, Dakar and Conakry with its association “Boulevards d’Afrique”. theater, Bac or marriage, co-written by Gérard Noyer and Fifi, sponsored by Jean-Claude Carrière, and finally performed at the Café de la Danse. In 1998, Fifi established the Petit Musée, which included a gallery, a pocket theater and now a restaurant. Past the wall, we do not really know where we are: the courtyard painted ocher-orange with its tables and chairs way art brut invites in any case to ask a little. The calligraphy wall that divides the space is that of the steps of the black lacquered pocket theater with the air of a citadel of the desert. In the modesty of its proportions, the place is bluffingly beautiful. Exhibits turn at the gallery; a residency of visual artists was organized in 2008. Such a structure deserves a financial support followed by the State.

Waiting, the Petit Musée will not disappoint those who want to know what is happening at the cultural level in Conakry. Without being patron, come and drink a ginger juice or eat one of the Guinean or Ivorian specialties in its beautiful white restaurant and tiled under the eye of paintings on the ceiling could be an honest contribution to the survival of such a beautiful place. ”
