Opera Village Africa is a project to help the area just outside Ouagadougou, the Capital of Burkina Faso through the development of art and creativity by providing places for art and experimentation and amenities for the village. This was Schlingensief’s last project before he passed away in 2010, yet the project wasn’t abandoned and is continually growing to make this idea a reality.
