Madiaw Ndiaye devoted his residency to climate change, and to discussing its impacts and implications with Sinthian’s inhabitants. He held two forums—one with the men of the village, and the other with women—to share perspectives on climate change, and to discuss what strategies might be developed to confront and cope with it. Madiaw also played a large role in preparing children for the cultural performance at Thread; he worked extensively with the performers on theatrical techniques and approaches.
