A quasi-complete restoration was carried out at the Royal Court of Tiébélé (Burkina Faso), between March and April 2017. “Dizénidani Association for the Promotion of Education of Tiébélé” (ADPET) was at the origin of this local initiative.
In addition to the rehabilitation works, the annual “dora” wall painting competition was also held at the historical site this spring. For this fourth edition of the contest, young girls from 5 high schools brought their know-how acquired over the years though ADPET activities to restore the traditional paintings.
An emblematic heritage of the Kassena people, the Royal Court represents a national treasure for Burkina Faso. But the fragile site, composed of elementary materials and exposed to the weather all year long, requires regular restorations.
ADPET benefits from the Cuomo Foundation’s support since 2014.
