OPPORTUNITY! DEADLINE TODAY: Are you an experienced creative activist based in Ghana or Senegal? Yes? Then you should apply to be in the West Africa Creative Action Team (WACAT) and work with us to promote Artistic Activism in West Africa
As we confront the challenges of poverty, unemployment, economic liberation and creating a better future for the Ghanaian people, we must also support those who are yet to achieve their liberation, and yet to begin the process of decolonisation, such as the occupied and colonised Palestinian people.
