Chalewote Street Art Festival Slated For August 20th – 26th

Chalewote is an alternative platform that brings art, music, design, dance and performance out into the streets. The community-based festival takes place in James Town – one of Accra’s most historic communities and targets exchanges between Ghana-based and international artists creating and appreciating art together.

Chalewote’s first festival took place in July 2011, with a lot of discussions about creating DIY (do-it-yourself) community projects by participants at their Talk party series.

Well, this year’s Chalewote event is basically about “Para-Other which represents our evolution beyond the dialectic of belonging and non-belonging.” -they stated in a blog post accradotaltradio.com.

They also said “Para-Other is a transatlantic shortwave that transcends language and geography, but is also represented in relationship to unique locals. It is a philosophy born out of historically determined necessity to flourish beyond a world of alienation and crisis we currently experience as reality. Para-Other requires new knowledge fractals, codes, symbols, and sounds that transmit our core creative intent where imperial languages fail us. This order is an embracing of a black labyrinth and establishment of an aesthetic that captures our cessation of flight and transit into a non-contested existence.”

And this is to happen on the 20th – 26th of August 2018 in Jamestown, Accra.
