Accra[dot]Alt & the Chale Wote Festival (2012)
There are few events in Ghana’s annual social calendar that makes me as excited as the Chale Wote festival. Organised by Accra[dot]Alt and sponsored by the French Embassy, the American Embassy, Dust Magazine and many others, the Chale Wote Street Festival is an annual street arts festival that takes place in one of the most historical parts of Ghana, Jamestown.
The festival basically shuts down an entire road in one of Accra’s oldest and most historic area and provides both festival goers and Jamestown residents an opportunity to engage with the Arts in new and innovative ways. Performance artists, musicians, graffiti artists and painters from all over the world interact with the public to create transient and lasting art in the area.
Here are some of our favourite images from the Festival. If you want information on how to get involved or to make a donation, contact Mantse or Sionne from Accra[dot]Alt on +233-244-897-948 for more information.
