Accra has been named the "Coolest City in Africa" by the New York Times. This experience, hosted by a mover and shaker in the arts and culture scene, will show you why. Meet with artists and designers, visit a private members club, and do so exclusively in this private 1:1 experience.
I am the founder of Kofie.co a boutique design house specializing in turning batik print fabrics into kimono style high fashion robes. I'm passionate about contemporary African art, design, and our evolving aesthetic in both music and fashion. My experiences center on uncovering the art, design, and indie music scenes in Accra and sharing my lens with you.
