AN EXHIBITION OF WORK BY REUNION ISLAND’S SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS CREATED BY LIONEL LAURET

In 2018, as part of the 170th anniversary of the abolition of slavery, in partnership with the Departmental Council and the Academy of Reunion Island, a competition was organised as part of the student’s citizenship programme. Using the name of slaves listed in Madame Desbassayns’ will, the pupils were asked to paint a portrait of one or more slaves. 85 public and private secondary schools took part in the event and a collective exhibition of their work was presented at the Villèle Museum.
