Ancestor Projects seeks to use art and performance to empower, educate and promote youth interest in African heritage. It is a pseudo-Art movement created by Ghanaian Artist Kwame Akoto-Bamfo. Kwame explains; “The Ancestor Project is a conscious effort by the creators (artists and volunteers) and participants (everybody else) to promote African heritage values through the use of art, music and performance. It is the vehicle through which our objectives will be channelled to the public”. Simply put, Ancestor Project is a group of artists, architects, designers, performers and volunteers who are using their skills to empower and educate youth in the diaspora about African heritage.
