RAW Material Company is a centre for art, knowledge and society located in Dakar, Senegal. Engaged in curatorial practice, artistic education, residencies, knowledge production and archiving of theory and criticism on art, RAW Material Company works to foster appreciation and growth of artistic and intellectual creativity in Africa. Its programme is trans-disciplinary and informed by literature, film, architecture, politics, diaspora, fashion and cuisine.

RAW Académie is an experimental residential programme for the research and study of artistic and curatorial practice and thought. The programme takes place over seven weeks in Dakar. It is dedicated to a dynamic reflection on artistic research, curatorial practice and critical writing. The Académie is held during two distinct sessions per year; October–December and April–June. Each session is directed by a lead faculty who has displayed an off-the-beaten-track practice in regard to art, curating and art criticism. This faculty develops an approach to the session and invites other people whose work fit the theme.
