Wide Open Walls Project

Preview of one of Eelus's stencils for the project
This sounds like a really amazing project happening soon in Gambia Africa. Here is the project brief from the Wide Open Walls blog:

In October the artists will travel to The Gambia for two weeks, staying at Mandina River Lodge at Makasutu Culture Forest. They will then travel each day to Kubuneh village by boat to transform rural Africa into a living art village. Kubuneh is part of The Ballabu Conservation Project, an 85 sq kilometre area incorporating 14 villages.
We are really looking forward to see the work from this project in the coming weeks, and will definitely post more on it soon.
