2022 Artists
Following the tradition of festivals in Ghana as sites for commemoration, celebration, and community strengthening and development, Nubuke Foundation conceptualised the WOORI festival.

It is an opportunity to showcase intergenerational indigenous knowledge and interventions within the fields of weaving and pottery and to invite conversations, contributions, and interactions deliberately.

Doing this will lead to increased understanding and transformation of textile weaving and clay moulding tradition in the Upper West region of Ghana.

It is a gathering for researchers, artists, and creative people who wish to explore the multifaceted nature of synesthetic perceptions to tease out and showcase the synergies and connections with visual, sound, textures, shapes, and performance art that they can create within these creative forms.

The Nubuke Foundation centre for Clay and Textiles serves as a focal point for the community and has become a nurturing and promotion space for textile-based practising artists.

Under ACP-EU CULTURE PROGRAM Support to cultural and creative sectors in West Africa (2021-2023), Nubuke Foundation is offering artist in residency opportunities for up to 4 individuals.

The self-directed residency programme offers artists, writers, designers, curators, scholars, and other creative individuals the time, space and inspiration to retreat, reflect, explore and experiment with their own practice.

This will take place at the Nubuke Foundation’s Centre for Textile and Clay in our serene 10-acre site in Loho, on the outskirts of Wa in the Upper West region.

Calls will be put out in the coming months via Nubuke Foundation’s Social media and website.
