The art project “Bandjoun Station” to be presented by ARTPORT_making waves as part of Solutions COP21, consists of the screening of the film Bandjoun Station by Thierry Spizter and workshops by Barthélémy Toguo at the Grand Palais in collaboration with youth organizations and schools in Paris.

The artist will teach young people about agriculture and what this means for a healthy and environmentally friendly life by showing and illustrating the example of Bandjoun Station in Cameroon. He will show solutions for a huge problem known to be one of the important causes of climate change worldwide: agriculture. He will teach about sustainable nutrition for every citizen and the social as well as environmental impact of this integrative model.

Bandjoun Station is a role model on the African continent for young people giving them the tools to create dynamic and feasible links between them and the collective of the residing artists contemplating artistic, environmental, agricultural and social practices. The artist will create collective art works with the participating students which will later be included in an exhibition.
