For several years Binta Sagna was a frequent collaborator of the Centre for Fine Arts, especially the Africa Desk and our Communication department.

Her professionalism, outstanding human qualities and passionate commitment for the development of Senegal and the African continent made her a beloved and respected colleague. In 2017 the Johannesburg magazine Tropics Magazinenamed her one of the leaders who shape Africa. A great communicator, ardent feminist, and knowledgeable about art and culture – a close friend of Youssou Ndour – she mounted her own communication agency ‘La Sénégauloise’. Most recently Binta was instrumental in the success of the 2019 edition of our Afropolitan Festival at BOZAR.

Paul Dujardin, CEO and artistic director of the Centre for Fine Arts and all of Binta’s colleagues at BOZAR want to offer their heartfelt condolences to her family and loved ones.
