SAVE the DATE poster: CHALE WOTE 2013

We’re working our way to CHALE WOTE 2013 – a massive festival jam in James Town – on September 7th and 8th.

200 artists. 2 days. Too much free fun.

This year’s theme is to Re-imagine African Folklore by creating exciting and futuristic versions of communal stories that will magically come alive on the streets of James Town. We’ll have it all on High Street from live music, experimental theater and spoken word, extreme sport stunts, dance flash mobs, street fashion parades, graffiti murals and crazy art installations to a film festival, international food and fashion marketplace and even a masquerade procession.

To see a taste of what you’ll experience at CHALE WOTE 2013, check out last year’s highlight video:

    Chale Wote 2013 is just around the corner! Ghana’s biggest street art festival heads back to Jamestown early next month for a two-day celebration of African folklore. The festival will include mural painting, live music, dance, theater, spoken word, flash mobs, parades, and who knows what else. Shout out to the folks at Accra[dot]alt who organize this festival and to the artists at Nima Muhinmanchi Art who will be transforming a Jamestown building into their next large-scale public mural during this year’s Chale Wote. Due to my recent relocation to the States, I’m unable to attend. More vim to all those in Accra who are able to take part!
