Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The birthing of a new face for Ghana’s capital city Accra has begun starting from the Ako-Adjei Interchange formerly called the Sankara Interchange.
Ghana’s capital is currently witnessing a surge of graffiti culture with extraordinary designs aimed at transforming wrecked walls of major public spaces and monumental sites.
The initiative is being spearheaded by the Creative Arts Council led by its vibrant creative director and daughter of the president, Gyankromah Akufo-Addo.
Arts for all Project is a five phase initiative which has already started with breath-taking graffiti designs at the Ako-Adjei Interchange.
Built between September 1997 and December 1999, during the Jerry Rawlings administration, the Ako-Adjei flyover is Ghana’s first interchange.
The flyover is located between Ring Road Central and Independence Avenue along Liberation Road in Accra with links towards the 37 Military Hospital and the Police headquarters.
Since its construction, the flyover does not only aid in easing traffic congestion in the capital but has also been serving as an attraction point for some tourists.
On the wheels of its tourist benefits to the country, Gyankromah Akufo-Addo, the creative director for the Creative Arts Council and her team together with graffiti experts are embarking on the Arts for all Project aimed at beautifying public spaces in Accra.
Gyankromah Akufo-Addo speaks about the deeper connotations of the graffiti in the video.
