A Space to Explore
A plane of concrete stretches out under the blazing sun of Accra. Ramps and slopes are grazed by a bright yellow that finds its match on the wall of a small building overlooking the area. The word “Freedom” is written in bold letters just above the door. This makes up the grounds of Freedom SkatePark, Ghana’s first official Skatepark, and a nurture ground for creativity and community. In full use since its opening in December last year, this video kickstarted the crowdfunding campaign and shows the early stages of the project. Watch to look back and meet the people behind the initiative, who have since made their vision a reality.
