From 17th February – 10th March 2018, ANO will launch a new initiative, The Sunsum Sessions, to celebrate Ghana’s Masters of Culture. The Sessions will invite audiences, both live and online, to partake in intimate interactions, as well as performances, exhibitions, screenings and readings; and to witness the soul, the sunsum, of Ghana’s creativity – past, present and future.
