GEPA meets art dealers ahead of Adinkra International Arts & Crafts Show

The Ghana Export Promotion Authority has held a meeting with members of handicraft associations to discuss the first-ever Adinkra International Arts and Crafts Show (AIACS), which is scheduled to be hosted in Ghana from April 26th to May 5th, 2024.

Held on February 21, 2024, at the Africa Trade House, the meeting was intended to share insights on preparatory arrangements and registration procedures in the run-up to the event.

Addressing participants, the Deputy CEO of GEPA, Samuel Dentu, assured them of GEPA’s commitment to supporting the handicraft sector to become a major source of foreign exchange for Ghana.

He said Adinkra aims to put the spotlight on the Ghanaian arts industry and build a formidable brand for Ghana, akin to other famous international art shows.

He called for the support of all stakeholders to ensure that the maiden edition becomes successful.

The first edition of the Adinkra International Arts and Crafts Show will be held at the Papaye Recreational Village in Aburi, in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

The 10-day festival, organised by GEPA, promises to become a hub for knowledge sharing and inspiration while championing authentic African functional art, craft, home décor, jewellery, and textile products.

Visitors will have the opportunity to witness the display of rich Ghanaian culture and visit tourist centres such as the Aburi Botanical Gardens.

The biennial fair is intended to boost art exports by showcasing high-quality African artworks while providing a platform for industry players to network and explore business opportunities.
