Aboubakar Fofana is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. He started an indigo farming cooperative project involving the local community in southern Mali. His project aims to heal the devastated land, replant trees and demonstrate a complex, entirely organically farmed, agricultural ecosystem, in which all the plants and cycles they undergo support the structure and the short-term goals of feeding local people, the medium-term goal of indigo production and dyeing, and the long-term goal of assisting to maintain biodiversity and preserving the agricultural and cultural heritage of this part of Mali.
