Residence in Ghana to Perform, Explore, Reflect

The ancestral voices are reaching out to us, the people of Curaçao and Ghana,
They show us new opportunities to relate, to exchange, to share.

Guides of our march

Ghana has interested me since I was young. I visited Ghana in 2016 where I participated among others in a village outreach program. I also visited several parts of Ghana (a few of them I mentioned in my story) and focused on contacts with the locals. In my story I provide a historical picture of the slave trade as experienced by a particular person narrated by descendants of this person. I see great opportunities for both countries once the relationship between Ghana and Curacao is tightened. These opportunities are based on my own experiences while in Ghana. In my story I elaborate on such opportunities.
