The CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival is undoubtedly the biggest street art festival in west Africa, and the most attended social event in Ghana for the past 3 years. This year’s festival comes off on August 23 & 24 in James Town. The Community the holds the remnants of Pre-Colonial, Colonial and Post Colonial Gold Coast/Ghana. Last year over 8000 people from around the world witnessed the festival. This year, more than 10,000 people are expected to attend. Each edition is based on a theme, and so all cultural performances, Graffiti murals, Installations and music are plotted around that theme. Last year, the festival explored a theme around “Reimagining African folklore by creating exciting and futuristic versions.” This year the artists will be delving deep into “Death: An Eternal Dream Into Limitless Rebirth,” as the theme. We all do believe that death is a part of mankind and so it must be discussed in an imaginative way. It’s going to be two days of extra-ordinary fun since there would be a fashion market for everybody to familiarize themselves with the latest Ghanaian fashion trendS. And also a Food cookout where drinks and delicious cusines from around the world will be available. SO everybody who is a lover of art must “COME TO THE CENTER OF THE WORLD,” on AUGUST 23 & 24.
