Mission Statement

The FCA's objectives are:

Establish a public database of artists, arts organizations, art businesses, galleries, patrons, and others interested in Contemporary Art in Ghana.

Create a website to promote Contemporary Art in Ghana . The FCA Ghana website will present Contemporary Art in Ghana to the rest of the world. Artists and Partners will have the opportunity to represent themselves on the site. The website will also act as an archive of Contemporary Art in Ghana . Exhibitions past and present, reviews, essays, lectures and artist lists will be presented as well as links to other Contemporary African Art websites.

Organise exhibitions, seminars, workshops, and publications to raise the awareness of and develop the critical thinking within Contemporary Art in Ghana . There is a need to encourage the presentation of Contemporary Art in Ghana to increase its exposure in the country. FCA Ghana will organise annual exhibitions for members as well as curated exhibitions and will work with its members to organise individual exhibitions by facilitating exhibition spaces and pro-motions. We will also work with our partners in the mounting and promotion of exhibitions and programs.

In addition to exhibitions, forums for discussion and the exchange of ideas are also necessary. FCA Ghana will work with its partners to organize seminars and workshops to foster critical thinking and professional development in Contemporary Art.
The documentation of art events is not widely practiced and there is no publication to represent Contemporary Art in Ghana . FCA Ghana will initiate an annual publication on the State of Con-temporary Art in Ghana that will cover artists, organizations, galleries, and businesses involved in Con-temporary Art. Establish a library of arts-related texts available for consultation and research.

As the Contemporary Art world in Ghana grows, more is written about its history and current status. These essays, books, and articles are scattered and unknown to those interested in Contemporary Art. FCA Ghana will gather and catalogue these valuable texts and, along with other art-related texts and information on International Contemporary Art, create a library available to the public. The FCA Ghana library will become an important resource for members and others interested in Contemporary Art.


The FCA currently only has two paid members of staff, the remaining personnel are all practicing artists or arts related people who volunteer their time. As a result they are in need of a volunteer to help with the efficient running of their office at the WEB Dubois Center . The volunteers will help with the establishment of the art-book facility, liaise with the web designer and with artists, assist with the organization and setting up of FCA exhibitions, and help project future events, from the forth-nightly meetings to possible seminars and art shows.
