Colours of The Ghanaian Savannah

Dive into a selection of publications we’ve put together over the last couple of years. 

Colours of the Ghanaian Savannah

In February 2018, the University of Applied Arts organised its first workshop with the Nubuke Centre for Textiles and Clay. The workshop was facilitated by Ladji Barry, a dyer and artist from Mali. The aim of this first workshop was to establish an initial basis for an “active archive” of the region’s material culture. The publication Colours of the Ghanaian Savannah (2019) is an archive of the workshop.

Woori Catalogues

We do a great job at documenting and re-telling the stories of our different involvements in the Woori Festival. Here, we present to you a couple of our Woori Catalogues we’ve produced over the years. 

Woori Catalogue 2022

How do we encounter one another in a time of a pandemic? How do we co-produce? The 2022 Woori Festival focused on these questions. The catalogue shows the works of contemporary artists: Billie McTernan, Nuotama Bodomo, Ransford Anane, Kate Wand, Edinam Boni-Mississo, Alice Raymond, Tei Huagie, Edward Lamptey, Gideon Hanyame, Halimatu Iddrisu and Seyram Agbleze.

Woori Catalog 2021

A Festival of our Weaving Tradition was started in 2021. It is currently the only festival dedicated to the tradition of weaving in Ghana.  Woori is a local Waali word which means ‘woven fabrics’. The 2021 Woori catalogue include the works of Michael Jackson Blebo, Na Chainkua Reindorf, Esther Ofosu, Edward Lamptey, and Winfred Nana Amoah.
