ARTS MISSION 360 : 2012 Short-Term Missions to Ghana
Feel artistically gifted and called by God? Leave your comfort zone. Let’s go! The NEXT STOP is Abetenim Arts Village near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. It will be for 1 to 12 months according to your project. The language is English.
By: Nka Foundation
Arts Mission 360 is designed to bring together Christians in the arts from diverse parts of the globe to place themselves and their practice into meaningful connection with a target community so that the community is positively transformed and people find their place in shaping a better future. By 360, we imply 360 of the 366/365 days in the year are for the project; the other days in the year are in celebration of public holidays such as New Year’s Day, Easter, Independence Day, and Christmas. Thus, we are looking for artists, arts (talens) organizations and interested others to cover the 360 days of 2012. We provide free accommodation, and welcome participants throughout the year. You can stay for a few weeks or the whole year according to own project. Arts Mission 360 is organized by Nka Foundation in collaboration with FocusOnTheArts.Org.
Whatever your artistic calling is in: new media/film production, visual arts, literary arts, performing arts, arts education, or design… Whether you do community health, afterschool program, open crowd festivals, or another… there is room on our mission field for all. Join us! It's time for action –no more excuses! We will use local schools, churches, market places and other spaces as sites for implementation of our projects. Come to Abetenim and help us! You will have memories of a lifetime.
We provide free accommodation in an Arts Village setting (20 kilometers from Kumasi) at Ejisu-Juaben District in the Ashanti Region. The international participants are responsible for own travel costs and proposed project. Cost of living is affordable, but we suggest that participants apply for travel grants through their national art councils or other sources.
If you are unable to come in person and have fundraising skills/ experience, you can pitch in as Online volunteer. You will help us to spread word of our project to your local media/online forums, churches, philanthropies, organizations and businesses as to support our project.
To apply, e-mail detail on what your plan to accomplish with us, your CV, and examples of your work to email@example.com. If you are unable to go now, but would like to support this trip financially or in some other way, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nka Foundation is an idea just as much as a non-profit organization. It is an artist initiative founded in 2005 with focus on human capital development through use of the arts at the intersections of life-long education, multidisciplinary and cross-cultural collaborations.
