It was a fulfilling moment facilitating a workshop on ARTS INTEGRATION during the parallel sessions because it has been his on-going campaign in Ghana.

Atsu also featured in his first in-person international project at Oslo.

“ALL THIS AND MORE" is a global participatory performance event that focuses on the problem that by 2050 there will be 1.5billion climate refugees seeking shelter in all our major cities.

Concept by Simon Sharkey of "The Necessary Space" Co-directed by Henriette Blakstadd and Claudia Lucacel for ITAC6. Produced by Seanse Art Center

The Ghana Education Service also acknowledged Atsu in one of the Creative Arts Text Books. This inspired Atsu to continue with his Arts in Education campaign in Ghana.

In 2020, Covid-19 denied the International Teaching Artist Collaborative (ITAC), from organising the usual in-person arts conference (International Teaching Artist Conference) which was going to be a great gathering at Seoul, South Korea). Persistent, ITAC 5 was organised online and Atsu was appointed as a Collective Room Leader.
