Empowering youth though painting in Ghana

Focus
May 27, 2013

In Nima, a slum of the city of Accra in Ghana, a group of local artists banded together to launch a program called Nima Muhinmanchi Art (« NMA »). This name means « the importance of art ».

Since 2011, these artists have been offering free painting workshops to youth in Nima. Every Saturday, students can learn and practice different art techniques, especially by creating mural paintings in the slum. Strengthening social cohesion, revitalizing Nima urban area through street art, enhancing young people’s creativity and preparing them for a professional career as artists: these are the many goals pursued by NMA. The works are sold and revenues are partially reinvested in the program in order to secure its economic viability.
