“Thousands of Sudanese artisans have welcomed a new law restricting foreign artisans who dominate the local art market, making it less profitable for the locals.

Over the years, the country’s art market has been in the hands of foreigners, because the country has not invested much in the arts. To avert this, the country has moved to support Sudanese artisans through social and health welfare provision and even training sessions to hone their skills.

Before the secession of the South Sudan, most of the country’s artisans hailed from the South. Departure of over 2.5 Million South Sudanese living in the North before their independence last July left the market to foreigners, something that led to rise in prices of handicrafts such as wooden carvings, leather bags and shoes.”

“As painted here…she’s a town girl but at the same time there’s a lot of influence you get when you are mixed up with other cultures, but you have to keep your culture. 
 
Sometimes when you see horrible things in your country you feel ashamed and you just want to…pretend to forget all the culture that you have. Trying to do that might impact later on your children…If I don’t remind [my child] of the stories, my culture and my ancestors, like how Dinka culture was like…he won’t be able to remember because he doesn’t know anything about it unless I tell him….My expectations I have on my child [are] that he will grow with certain values that my parents taught me and those values are part of me no matter how much I try to pretend to detach myself from this culture. It’s not going to go anywhere because I was born in that specific area and that’s who I am.”
