Senegal art village hope to attract world designers

In remote countryside, The Thread aspires to inspire local villagers and attract designers from across the world.

    Deep in the remote countryside of Senegal, a unique arts centre is aiming to bring inspiration to local villagers.

    It is called The Thread, and its ambition is to widen the appeal of modern art, away from its usual hubs of London, New York and Berlin.
