The CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival is an alternative platform that brings art, music, dance
The first festival took place in July 2011, following a series of discussions about creating DIY [do-¬it yourself] community projects by participants at our Talk Party Series. Our partners for the festival include Redd Kat Pictures, Dandano, Mumble, Chaka Orleans Heritage and Gamashie Development Agency.
Our vision is to cultivate a wider audience for the arts in West Africa by breaking creative boundaries and using art as a viable form to rejuvenate public spaces. The CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival challenges both artists and community-¬based audiences to connect through art.
The festival includes street painting, graffiti murals, photo exhibitions, interactive installations, a food and fashion marketplace, live street performances, extreme sports, African Cinema pavilion, street boxing, a fashion parade, a music block party, design labs and much more.
More than 200 Ghana-based and international artists take part in the event every year.
In 2018, over 100,000 people attended CHALE WOTE.
The street festival will be held virtually this year due to the coronavirus. This was announced to the public by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly through a press release.
