The CHALE WOTE Prelude: Live Art Jam

MUSAH SWALLAH (NIMA MUHINMANCHI ART)

On Saturday, March 31st we hosted a live action art jam at the Foundation for Contemporary Art Ghana (FCA) office. We put some paint where it ain’t – all in preparation for The CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival on April 14th in James Town, 10am – 11pm. Throngs of creative folks unleashed their art fire as we painted colorful signboards + cloth, designed + cut elaborate stencils, and spray-painted plastic bottle sculptures.

MAGICAL BRUSHES!

We also know how to GeT doWn. Dr. Sionne Neely + Kwabena Danso kept it funky for the people on the selecta. We filled our bellies with scrumptious jerk chicken, fried yam, samosas and cinnamon donuts.
