Turku Artists’ Association started cooperating with a regional organisation in Dakar called JASG in the year 2004. The Project Taf Taf, based on the values of communality and flexibility, started as a small community initiative and grew over the years into a diversified project that aimed to improve the living conditions of the poor neighbourhood of Santhiaba in Dakar. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has funded Turku Artists’ Association’s initiatives in Senegal from the start. The first initiative was the original Taf Taf Project that consisted of tasks such as repairing wells, planting trees and building a small community centre that holds different kind of activities for children and adults.
