Dulcie Abrahams Altass
Dulcie was born and grew up in East London, first moving abroad to Paris at 18 before starting her degree in History of Art and French at University College London. Her studies took her to Dakar in 2013 for a year-long internship with the artist’s collective Les Petites Pierres, and then back to Paris for a year’s study at Paris I and IV, specialising in African history. I have also spent the last three years working on collaborative, community-oriented art projects in Dakar, Senegal.
Building on her prior engagement to collaborative art projects, she has returned to Senegal on several occasions for research and to contribute to the organisation of a series of cinema clubs. Recently graduated and the recipient of the Violet Hall prize for academic achievement, she is now based in Dakar where she continues to pursue research on performance and social change.
My focus is on the intersection of performance, social issues and narrative, an area I have explored through undergraduate research and project management in Dakar, Paris and London. An international fellow at the RAW Academy in Dakar, I am currently seeking work in Senegal’s cultural sector.
