Nima Muhinmanchi Art (NMA) is a collective of artists dedicated to empowering youth and aspiring artists through a variety of creative outlets in Accra, Ghana. Representatives from NMA spent a day with a group of SAS students and showcased their public murals, toured small art studios and taught a painting class.
A group of civically engaged artists living in the neighborhood of Nima came together in 2011 with the desire to help transform their community through art. They have worked tirelessly to ‚Äúreshape perceptions of Nima through cultural programs, rethink public space in Accra through mural paintings, and address a gap in the nation’s educational system by providing free after-school art classes.‚Äù
Below are some of the many inspiring moments from the day spent exploring the city with a group of kind and welcoming NMA guides.
