This year’s edition of the annual Chale Wote Street Art Festival will take place in James Town on August 20-26 in Accra, organisers have announced.
This year’s edition of festival is expected to bring together people from all walks of life who appreciate artists and their art.
Over the last seven years, the festival has propelled the development of independent creative artists and the arts economy in Accra.
The street art festival is an alternative platform that brings art, music, dance and performance out into the streets.
It gives artists the platform to showcase their paintings, sculptures, photographs, films, fashion, mixed media, comedy, culinary arts, music and dance.
‘Chale Wote’, literally translated as ‘friend let’s go’ in Ga, is organised by Accra [dot] ALT and REDD KAT Pictures, in collaboration with a number of cultural organisations across the city.
