The Trias Culture association has set up a training program called Trias Numerika, which consists of practical and theoretical courses for Senegalese cultural and artistic actors, with the objective of promoting greater mastery of existing technology tools and Internet services.
Six 70-hour training sessions are planned from June to December 2012, with courses on computer literacy, emailing, photo and video (including online), social networks, e-commerce, copyright, and more. This project will involve fifteen artists and cultural promoters who may or may not be familiar with the use of computers and Internet services. These sessions will thus help expand their knowledge and creative capabilities, strengthen their professional competences in an increasingly technological world, and facilitate access to knowledge and the creation of physical meeting and discussion spaces.
This project was made possible with support from the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo-AECID), in partnership with Jokkolabs, Campus numérique francophone (CNF), Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (UAF) of Dakar, and various cultural entities in the country, such as Centre culturel régional Blaise Senghor.
Trias Culture is a Senegalese association based in Dakar, which focuses on managing artistic and cultural projects, especially those linked to digital technologies.
