CHALE WOTE 2019 – Artists Spotlight

CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival grows in strength each year. In holding true to our vision to cultivate a wider audience for the arts in West Africa by breaking creative boundaries and using art as a viable form to rejuvenate public spaces, CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival challenges both artists and community-­based audiences to connect through art.
