An artistic eye on sensitive archives
The Vaud Cantonal Archives are pleased to present an enhancement of the Sentinelles Foundation's archives through the artistic intervention of the Marie-Louise collective. To be visited from 1 March.After a long process of analysis, evaluation and processing, the Sentinelles Foundation's archives have been donated to the Vaud Cantonal Archives (ACV). While these archives can be consulted (in part) in the ACV reading room, the inventory has been accessible online since October 2020.
The Cantonal Archives, in collaboration with Sentinelles, have chosen to promote this donation by organising an online conference on Noma, followed by an exhibition of drawings, since 1 March in the ACV reception hall.
The ACV commissioned the Marie-Louise Collective, made up of artists from the region who had access to part of the Sentinelles archives. Through their drawings, these artists offer their vision of these files and of the work of Sentinelles with children suffering from Noma disease.
Guided tours of the exhibition and of the Cantonal Archives will take place, upon registration (limit of 10 people per group):
- Thursday 27 May at 5.30 pm
- Wednesday 2 June at 12.30 pm
- Monday 7 June at 5.30 pm
Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 316 37 11.

The fight of Sentinelles against the noma
Two students from Eracom (Lausanne) questioned by the noma
For their master's thesis, Marie-Lou and Hervé, two (former) students wanted to film the work of Sentinelles in favor of the child victims of noma.
Shot in Burkina Faso, they filmed in particular Marietta, a child whose very survival was threatened. Greeted at the Ouagadougou Reception Center, they accompanied her until she returned to her family. They also followed two other girls who came to Switzerland for surgery.
This film, "A visage découvert", was premiered in September. Hervé and Marie-Lou wishing to show it in festivals, it is not yet accessible to the public. The video above, lasting 5 minutes, is an extract.
Take a tour of Burkina Faso in the footsteps of Marietta, and see how the work of Sentinelles offers the victims of the noma the prospects for a smiling future.
New videos of the Sentinelles action
New videos have been created to present the action of Sentinelles in different countries: Burkina Faso, Niger, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal and Colombia. You can see all of them under Multimedia (in French). Below, the one that concerns Burkina Faso:
