The project ‘Unheard Voices’ is a cooperation with a Danish NGO, 100% to the children and Ghanaian artist Delasi, working under the ‘reframing the message’ concept.
‘Reframing the message’ is a Danish campaign working to change the general perception of developing countries amongst the Danish people.
In the ‘Unheard Voices’ project the overall objective is “to support children and the youth in Accra to develop their talents and take part in developing the art culture of Ghana”.
Specifically, the children will gain musical skills they can use as an anchor and drive to create positive change in their lives.
The idea behind the workshops is simple: these children are agents in their own lives – not victims – and music can be one of the tools they can use to grasp new opportunities.
The project will have five (5) workshops with selected underprivileged children from Accra and do five songs and a video. This will be used for the ‘Reframing the Message’ campaign in Denmark.
The project manager- Delasi-is an artist who has personally experienced the power of music and its enormous ability to change not only an individual’s life but the direction of a community, as it provides opportunities to tackle prejudices and give voices to the voiceless.
This project would not be possible without our partner Goethe Institut with support from FCA, CAS and New Morning Foundation & Creative Centre.
