Welcome to the Nubuke Foundation
Experience Ghanaian culture at your oasis in the city with the Nubuke Foundation. Situated in the leafy suburb of East Legon in Accra is Nubuke - a space dedicated to the promotion of Ghanaian art, culture and heritage. At Nubuke Foundation, you can enjoy programmes ranging from exhibitions on art and Ghanaian culture, heritage and history, art workshops, poetry and drama. Artists will find our extensive interior space ideal for art exhibitions and installations. Art workshops are taught during the week, evenings and at weekends for adults and children.
Our well stocked library gives us the opportunity to help children to improve their reading and writing skills. We have drop-in sessions from 3-4pm every day.
Supporting the communities around us is an important focus for the Nubuke Foundation. Our reading clinic for school children from the La-Bawaleshie area is well attended by those who need to improve their reading and writing skills. We encourage other traditional arts producers with design mentoring programmes to infuse new ideas and methods into their work so they can appeal to a wider audience. The Tsiame weaving community benefited from a similar initiative, holding an exhibition of Ewe Kente at our gallery and our gift shop also became an outlet to sell their cloth.
We hold regular art workshops on collages, screen printing, beading, tie and dye, and Asafo flags. Our workshops can also be tailored for individual requirements. From November 2012, all workshops will be run in our newly-constructed workshop pavilion. Workshops take place during the day and in the evenings.
Nurturing artists and other creative people is part of our raison d’être…
