About the Festival

In the Akan language of Twi “Abakɔsem” means ‘history’ or, more specifically, ‘the fact that has come and gone’.

The Abakɔsem Festival is an online festival dedicated to celebrating Ghana’s rich history. It will be a space for Ghanaians, at home and in the diaspora, and people interested in Ghana’s history to critically engage with the history of our nation through panels, interviews, an online exhibition, and thought-provoking quiz night. With the support of historians, visual artists, writers, curators, and musicians, The Nana Project will explore the political and social history, music, photography, and fashion that shaped Ghana from the 20th century to the present day.

The Legacy in Print panel will discuss the work of photographers in highlighting Ghana's history and culture as well as the work of curators and curating institutions in preserving, archiving, and displaying photography as an art form.
