Ghana Creative Community Meetup

Big Thanks to everyone who attended our first Ghana Creative Community Meetup and Open Forum last Sunday! Writers, bloggers, photographers and supporters came through in their numbers to get together in community and discuss the joys and challenges of being a creative in Ghana.

Massive thanks to Henneh Kwaku Kyereh for leading a live service of his brilliant Church of Poetry Podcast, which you can listen to and participate in every week on Twitter Spaces. Thank you to all the readers for their beautiful performances of poetry from Africa and the Diaspora. We paid homage to the late great Kofi Awoonor on what would have been his 87th birthday.

Thanks to all the Bookstagrammers who gave us an interesting insight into the travails of being a book blogger in Ghana and what we can all do to support their work better.

Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences, thoughts, and ideas for building better community.

And Big, Big Thanks to Sarpong Osei-Asamoah for organising the event.
