Sébastien is a multimedia producer and participatory media facilitator based in Dakar, Senegal. He has been travelling extensively throughout West and Central Africa for most of the last 12 years, successively living in Mozambique, Burundi, and the Republic of Congo, working for the UNDP, UNICEF and SOS Children’s Villages International, combining communication for social change approaches, community engagement, and creative media.
Sebastien now consults independently behind the social enterprise DOYOUKOPI, which supports non-governmental and international organisations and grassroots movements in their community engagement, communication, advocacy, and research work by using creative media and narratives as tools to decode, engage, enable, and mobilise.
He is also working on a collaborative, interactive and immersive documentary project about informal workers in Senegal, connecting personal stories to larger social issues whilst tackling stereotypes and misrepresentations.
