Together, I joined selfless and purpose-driven artistes and teaching artists to joyfully launch ITAC GHANA COLLECTIVE. This historical event took place at Exopa main studio with the support of Abu Sadick Ibrahim, manager of Exopa Model Agency.

Actors, dancers, poets, musical talents, writers, directors, and teaching artists graced this gathering and made it meaningful. Ghana is proud to be part of an international mission that seeks to open opportunities for creative exchanges and advancing teaching artistry in Ghana.

The motivation and support from Eric Booth, Amy Kirkland, Madeleine McGirk and other hard working team members of the ITAC have brought us this far, and the flame, once unveiled, the fire can never be quenched.

THE GENESIS

In 2018, though I couldn’t travel to New York, USA, due to visa complications, in November 2018, I gathered few artistes and teaching artists, and behind the curtains, I boldly deem it important to establish a teaching artist collective in Ghana strictly under the umbrella of ITAC.

Some of the sessions I watched online inspired me on because I feel that if ITAC’s initiatives are projected here, it will go a long way to build TAs and artists in Ghana.

I can’t do without appreciating the ceaseless support of Antonia Larde Issifu, the C.E.O. of PROEYE STUDIOS.

Her busy lens documented all our photographs and videos.

Mr. Patrick Doe Adaletey

Mr. Patrick Doe Adaletey, my brother, grabbed the steer with his connections and opened us to a pathway that is smoothening our journey. I am so grateful.

Christabel Adjoa Issifu has been another wonderful board member whose financial support and in-kind donations keep us sailing.

John Kaledzi

John Kaledzi and Jidula Mawutor are some of the selfless board members whose contribution keeps us firm and moving.

Jidula Mawutor
Johannes Laryea (Brand Manager)

Johannes Laryea spends a great deal of time creating and publishes all our promos. His talent stands tall in this movement.

To the members of Dzolali Theatre House and Bright Future Arts Foundation, Ayekoo!!!

My special thanks goes to Mr. Elijah Kelvin Addo for the consistent support. I am proud that we are doing this together.

Mrs. Pecious Amegbor

Mrs. Precious Amegbor stepped in generously, offering the needed support and counselling. She holds this collective at heart.

LONG LIVE ITAC GHANA COLLECTIVE!!!

Taking GHANA’s artistry to the world.
