What is PARM
Art Challenge

We believe that
behind every farmer
there is a hero.

Use your talent to help us transform the portraits
of rural women and men of Africa into #FoodHeroes!

The world’s 510 MILLION smallholder-farming families produce about 35% of our food and yet they are among the poorest people in the planet.

In occasion of the #WorldFoodDay and the International #RuralWomenDay, the Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) together with its partners want to celebrate rural women and men that everyday face many risks to produce the food we eat in our plates.

The PARM Art Challenge aims at raising awareness on the urgency to strengthen farmers‘resilience to adapt to risks in agriculture and build sustainable agri-food systems.

The Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) is the global partnership on agricultural risk management (ARM) for development. Established in 2013 as an outcome of G20 discussions the Platform has the mandate to promote sustainable agricultural growth, boost rural investment, reduce food insecurity, and improve resilience to climate and market shocks of poor rural households through a better management of risks.

About Dak'Art

La Biennale de Dakar

The Dakar Biennale, or Dak’Art – Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain, is a major contemporary art exhibition that takes place once every two years in Dakar, Senegal. Dak’Art’s focus has been on Contemporary African Art since 1996.
The next Dakar Biennale will be held from May 19 to June 21, 2022 in Dakar under the theme of “NDAFFA” (drawn from “NDAFFAX”) which – in Serer language – invites to the forge. The term expresses the freedom to transform as well as the multiple possibilities to create.
PARM Food Heroes

Farmers live with risks and make decision every day that affect their farming operations.

They are frequently exposed to the uncertainty of weather, prices and diseases.

Discover the stories of our #FoodHeroes and how they have developed ways to manage risks…
