The Alliance Francais in Accra is playing host to an art exhibition organised by the Nima Muhinmanchi Art (NMA) to celebrate its 5th year in existence.
The exhibition which started on May 11 and will run till June 7 from 9am to 9 pm each dayat Alliance Française is themed, “Art Through Ages”.
Nima Muhinmanchi Art (NMA) is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) founded in Nima-441 (Accra Ghana) in 2011, by some artists to recreate spaces, perceptions, and societies through Arts and Culture.
They are a group of artists spearheaded by renowned artist, Musah Swallah, known for his amazing paintings on wood, Aminu Larry and Robin united with the common objective to use art as a tool for change.
These artists believe that creative thinking and cultural production will be critical tools for Ghana’s development. They, therefore, organise free workshops every Saturday between the hours of 2pm-4pm in painting and photography for children and the youth of Nima.
The aim, according to the group, is to give an opportunity to young artists in Nima who do not have the means or required training to learn and build upon their artistic talents which is moslty disregarded by their parents based on religious beliefs.
"Join in celebrating the development of urban art in Ghana and experience homemade art at its finest", said Ella Dartey, the Media Relations Officer at Alliance Francais, Accra.
