Adinkra stamps from Ghana
In Ghana I am called Aba, a female born on Thursday.
My guest house/cultural center is in a fishing village in a suburb of Accra.
Many people go to Africa and only have a superficial connection. We want to change that by introducing you to the culture and people on a personal level. We offer culturally relevant tours, volunteer opportunities, workshops with indigenous artisans, opportunities to write curriculum or perhaps you'd like to learn how to cook African food.
I divide my time between Boston, MA and Ghana. When in Boston, I sell work by Ghanaian artisans from my house. Because I work with so many artisans, the stock is always changing. My best sellers have to do with adinkra: the adinkra stamps, charts, cloths... I am also willing to ship, so if there's something you're interested in let me know, or if in Boston, stop by. Email me for more info.
Mission: Cross Cultural Collaborative, Inc. is an educational non-profit that invites people to Ghana to promote cultural exchange and education through the arts.
Our vision is to place people from different life experiences in an environment where they can exchange ideas and find universal connections.
