THE ABC OF FOOD, FASHION, AND ARTS IN GHANA
I do the “akwaaba dance” in my head every time I see people pushing the made-in-Ghana agenda! Yes! We are finally appreciating the beauty in Ghanaian culture: the food, the fashion, the art, the music and the community. It’s like a breath of fresh air!
Last year, we launched Ghana’s largest local food, fashion and art festival, CHOW GHANA. Chow Ghana seeks to showcase the culture of Ghana mainly through traditional food, fashion, tourism and a display of art, culture, and dance.
• Serving and building communities.
• Promoting collaboration & partnerships.
• Building strong ties and relationships.
• Food, products, music, arts, culture.
• Experience the best of Ghana.
Why Chow Ghana?
The name “Chow” though originally meaning food, doubles as a Ghanaian pidgin slang popularly meaning ‘food’ to both locals and the educated who have a knack for speaking pidgin. Hence the name, since it will be easily understood and adopted.
Chow Ghana is also an attempt to promote Ghana to the rest of the world. Its rich culture, art, food, and tourism potentials will be displayed in a continuous loop at the event.
Ghanaians love to defend their food to death! Not to talk of Ghanaian Jollof and the endless rant around their favorite waakye spots; so we thought, why not bring these favorite traditional meals together, foster creativity and birth happiness through food. Last year was great, but Chow Ghana 2018 will be even better! We will have a good variety of local food, fashion, and art stand this year; but there’s more!. We are celebrating Ghana this republic day (observation-2nd July) at Efua Sutherland at Ghana’s largest local food, fashion, and arts festival, Chow Ghana!.
