On 23rd March 2015, Esi Sutherland-Addy, Nana Oforiatta Ayim, Allotey Bruce-Konuah and Seton Nicholas met at the Mmofra Foundation to discuss the possibilities of collaboration on the archiving and digitisation of Ghanaian photography. It was agreed that there was a need to set up: A sustainable platform in different forms, both digital and spatial (incl. family albums, works by photographers Willis E. Bell, James Barnor and others). Services for photographers, (incl. exhibitions, workshops, training & publications).
Structural collaboration would involve each organisation drawing on its strengths and existing services in order to create a greater whole:
