Musée National Guinée
The National Museum of Guinea houses a collection of local objects that represent the country's different ethnic groups. Religious artifacts as well as art and everyday objects are exhibited.
Musée National Guinée digitised an existing exhibition, consisting of images, artefacts and texts, about the Koundara community in the north of Guinee. This is a minority community which has a small demographic and prolific cultural production which the museum wants to celebrate. It also utilised diverse community participation methods.
