August 19 @ 9:00 am - August 20 @ 6:00 pm
This annual festival occurs in the second week of August, and is deeply influenced by southern Ghanaian culture, especially Ghana’s Ga-Dangme traditions. August is the month of Homowo and Asafotufiam; both are Ga festivals, though generally rooted in shared West African traditional rites.
The festival is also known for the libation, prayers and traditional African rites that are performed for enslaved ancestors.
It has become a custom for the museum to also unveil new work created by artists at the museum.
