managed by Oyo Projects
Oyo Projects is an non-profit association of artists, activists and other committed people registered in germany. They share the wish to support street kids and young adults by engaging them in artistic and creative activities. Since 2012 the Oyo.Project team is working with street children in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. In total, the projects provides food, medical support and clothes to 15 – 20 children and youths and offers regular art classes and schooling. Instead of imposing Western concepts and solutions, the project wants to create a space for experimentation and exchange to explore new strategies: How to connect local means with international concepts by deconstructing the post-colonial power structures.
