In 8 years Chale Wote Street Art Festival has provided multiple platforms for discovering some of the most talented creators from around the world and Africa particularly. From August 14th to 25th ,over 150 artists from 21 countries are participating in an elaborate multi-disciplinary open air public space exhibition stretching from James Town into 6 satellite spaces throughout Accra; Kukun, National Theatre, Museum of Science and Technology, Tegan Heritage Collection and Museum, Ozzie’s and the new Gold Coast. Chale Wote has become a destination for emerging as well as established artists and cultural workers across the world.
In 2018 the SHIKA SHIKA Art Fair became a new feature of the festival. The fair supports and showcases dynamic presentations, and works from intergenerational artists, working outside of gallery spaces. This year will focus on the conceptual intersection of artistic thought around mythology from Africa and artist dialogues geared towards imaginative joint presentations.
