Theatre is an important part of the Voice4Thought Academy. Theatre is a way to research and express specific topics. It is also a means of exchanging knowledge, from the artist to the audience, and vice versa. In this way, theatre can make people think and talk about the questions that the artist asks his audience through his play.
In this portrait we present Khalifa Diakite, an artist and trainer in theater at the Academy whose mission is to contribute to the development of Mali. The purpose of theatre for him is to raise awareness, communicate and entertain his audience.
