BeMore Creative Community Studio, Ghana

In partnership with Sir Francis Nunoo and Farmer Nell, CEO of Be More Green, we offer a variety of visual arts opportunities to lift and empower the community.  The community studio was created to spark untapped interest in visual arts.  Youth learn valuable skills to promote career development, entrepreneurship and public speaking.

We aim to support marginalized women entrepreneurs with strategic programs, including coaching sessions, workshops, wellness retreats, film and media projects that are designed to amplify oppressed voices, increase economic stability and build their business leadership, knowledge and skills.

Our Magnolia Writing Tour was designed to improve health, relationships, and holistic wellness of women through narratives, Afro-Indigenous herbalism, discussions and excursions.
