What: Asabaako Festival
When: 4 – 7 March
Where: Busua, Ghana
Asa Baako was launched in March 2011, in the spectacular fishing village of Busua in Ghana's Western Region. It was here, where festival organisers from the UK and Ghana, joined together with local residents, to create a free, two day celebration of local arts and culture.
Since then, Asa Baako has grown from one stage and a few hundred people, to a programme featuring the now legendary Jungle party, beach parties and a weekend of activities from surfing, art exhibitions, treks, tours, yoga, cinema for an audience of over 2,000 people.
In addition, Asa Baako works closely with the community of Busua in the following areas:
Arts: Creates experiences to celebrate African and African-inspired arts and culture
Conservation: Inspires, educates and encourages young people and adults to preserve and be more aware of the natural environment.
Social Inclusion: Working with local residents, with a focus on women and young people, to develop skills and entrepreneurial opportunities.
