Art Residency in Ghana

From July 9 to 22, 2018, I will be going to Ghana to participate in an art residency through this organization.
http://www.culturalcollaborative.org/

Cross Cultural Collaborative, is a non-profit educational organisation that promotes cultural exchange and understanding.  Our programs emphasize multigenerational and multicultural collaborations encouraging participants to find rewards in different forms of art.

In my own art I often utilize symbols from different African cultures, the Adinkra symbols in particular. I will have the opportunity to study these more and see and participate in the actual carving and stamping of the symbols.
I will also be assisting the President Ellie Schimelman working with about 20 kids to write and illustrate a children’s book about their village(Nungua),  helping the kids with their illustrations.

I would appreciate any help towards the cost of the residency and the round trip flight.  The funds are needed by June 22. 
I look forward to this great opportunity and to sharing with you my experience and portraying new images in my artwork.  To learn more about me and to see my printmaking art, please visit my website http://anneliesdykgraaf.com/
