The Nubuke Foundation developed the Young Ghanaian Artist (YGA) programme to enhance the artistic practice of new and emerging contemporary young artists (23 - 30) in Ghana.The Young Ghanaian Artist (YGA) Programme has since its inception provided a nurturing and supportive environment for artistic practice and ideas to be developed and honed.

Growing New Talent

As a pathway for growing new talent and capacity development within the industry, the programme-career development initiative offers selected artist(s) guidance and mentorship, workshops, discussions, gallery admin, and a critique clinic. All these strengthen practice, research, production of art, and market knowledge and equips artists with the skills to promote their career and build confidence.
