The Chale Wote Street Art Festival also known as Chale Wote is an alternative platform that brings art, music, dance and performance out into the streets. The festival targets exchanges between scores of local and international artists and patrons by creating and appreciating art together. 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. It is the first to be organized in Accra, Ghana and has inspired similar events across the country after the Homowo festival of the Ga people at the historical Jamestown, Ghana on the High Street in Accra. 

Here are some pictures of the street festival

The festival was held amid Covid restrictions and Ghanaians came in their numbers to watch. Chale Wote is now an established tourist attraction. The festival relies on volunteers and offers no funding to participating artists, but it now attracts thousands of visitors each year.

Thanks for enjoying the pictures.
