Ghanaian world-renowned artist, Ibrahim Mahama is transforming relics into a community learning space, transforming lives.
The artist has six aeroplanes parked in the middle of a verdant field miles away from the nearest runway in the village of Jenakpeng in northern Ghana where he teaches children in the community history, art and science.
“It’s not so much about inspiring artists, but producing thinkers,” Mahama said of the facility, which he built in his father’s village to give residents the chance to nurture critical thinking – a skill he believes is necessary for creative and personal liberation.
Watch the video showcasing the artist and some of his students.
