  • Join Us! 2015 INTERNATIONAL ARTIST WORKSHOP What would happen if you bring together artists from different cultures to interact and create works through use of materials from the environment?” Why not join us and find out? DATE: September 9 – 30, 2015 VENUE: Abetenim Arts Village near Kumasi in Ghana Nka Foundation invites arts practitioners from around the world for the 2015 International Artist Workshop at Abetenim Arts Village in Ghana. Practitioners in the visual arts, building arts, literary arts, performing arts, design and film/new media are all welcome to participate. We will immerse ourselves in the local environment and create site-specific works through use of earth and other materials from the environment. Our rural arts village provides the participant with time and space away from the everyday stresses of city/studio life to focus and investigate own practice, creating the possibility for discovery, collaboration and growth. The arts village has an openair theatre, workspaces and guest houses for your accommodation. Most evenings will be used for reviewing workshop progress along with artist lectures, impromptu performances and presentations by workshop participants. By alternating work and dialogues, we anticipate cross fertilization of ideas. Join us! COST: Food and accommodation 120€/week (flight costs are not included).
