The CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival is an alternative platform that brings art, music, dance and performance out onto the streets of James Town in Accra. The festival targets exchanges between scores of local and international artists and patrons who create and appreciate art together. It also serves as a ground for experimentation and many artists find their voice here. The Foundation for Contemporary Art – Ghana is the visual coordinator of the festival.
Since 2011, CHALE WOTE has included street painting, graffiti murals, photography, theater, spoken word, interactive art installations, live street performances, extreme sports, film shows, a fashion parade, a music block party, recyclable design workshops and much more.
