AKWAABA returns this February to Congress Heights Arts and Culture Center (CHACC), located at 3200 Martin Luther King Avenue SE. CHACC + NationHouse will host it's 2nd Annual Pan-Afrikan extravaganza + fundraising art exhibit featuring original art created by their students.
Founded by socially conscious visual and performance artists who attended Howard University in the late 1960s, NationHouse Positive Action Center is celebrating its 44th year of educating families in historical and cultural truth.
The name of the exhibit, Akwaaba, means welcome in the Ghanaian language of Twi, and this will be an opportunity to welcome this new partnership with CHACC and the community at large. This month long exhibit with events on February 2nd, 16th and 25th will raise awareness for NationHouse and raise funds for the school's programs and growth. It provides the students and teachers a chance to showcase their art for the wider community.
