The Spirited Mosaics of Ghana

Cooperation!

With direction from the artist team, local community members helped transfer the design to the wall and over 30 participants—youth, adults, artists and non-artists—all helped to set the mosaic. Many of this year’s participants had worked with True on prior community mosaic projects, while many new participants joined in for the first time this summer. Some people worked every day, some just stopped by to set a few pieces and were on their way. The community participants ranged in age from 4 - 65 years old.
