With the increasing concerns for Sustainable Development Goals, SHF is finding alternative ways of communicating the importance of these global goals. Street Arts have enormous potentials to communicate the change we need and the #futurewewant. Graffiti is one of the forms of street arts adopted by SHF to reach a wider and inclusive audience expressing the urgent need for global action on the 17 Sustainable Development goals.
This project is a partnership between Sysy House of Fame and the United Nations in collaboration with Alliance Francaise. Produced by Christo Becks, Kayaman and Bamako, these artists expressed their views on the SDGs on the walls of Alliance Francaise in Bamenda which is opened to at least 5000 people per day.
Sunday 1st of March witnessed the launching of this month-long project with the Head of UN OCHA Bamenda Ilham Moussa cutting the ribbon and wishing the community well amidst the ongoing crisis. Njobati Sylvie the CEO and project coordinator introduced the wall to the over 300 guests who were present. Amidst other activities that marked the day was the SDG village that was full of different games to boost people’s understanding of the SDGs.
In the wake of the armed conflict different UN agencies present at this occasion share the dreams and visions of young people and also discussed heir wishes with words of encouragement.
