british library ghana exhibition fabrics

It doesn’t seem a year ago, but here are Ghanaian fabrics exhibited as part of the West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song Exhibiton, at the British Library

It was truly educational exhibition, with a very range of content, including aspects of ancient West African kingdoms – politics architecture, literature, religion, culture, dance and music; but also coming right up to date with the influence of modern day politicians, writers and musicians such as Fela Kuti.

It also included the impact of West Africa world wide with audio visual features featuring the UK/Notting Hill carnival and modern day religious practices from Cuba.

I’ll share more soon..

Take care
