What we do

We work with the best of creative talent to develop innovative, high-quality events and collaborations with artists and cultural institutions around the world.

We secure relationships with creative partners internationally to deliver exciting projects from theatre and dance to visual arts and design.

Our work in arts is delivered through our West Africa Arts Programme with activities in Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and the UK. The programme has three main strands - Festivals programme, Creative Hubs Programme and Creative Hustle until 2020.

Keep up to date with all projects on social media via #UKWestAfricaArts

 

Creative Enterprise Support Programme

Ghana’s creative industry is a rapidly growing economic powerhouse that is increasingly being recognised as a pathway for sustainable livelihoods for young people across art forms such as film. The creative industry, however, is faced with the obstacles of weak policy support, lack of infrastructure, weak skills base, low levels of awareness of the livelihood opportunities that exist within the sectors (particularly non-artistic) and limited opportunities for networking, collaborations and skills-sharing.
