Nka Foundation, NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for design-build workshops for learning-by-doing on sustainable architecture at the Abetenim in Ghana. Contact: info@nkafoundation.org / www.nkafoundation.org for application form.


DATES: We run Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring Workshops

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Everybody is welcome: students and recent graduates of architecture, design and volunteers from around the world. Students can use the opportunity for internship/stage or thesis.

PROJECT SITE: Abetenim Arts Village, which is a developing demonstration site and training center, located 40 km Southeast of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

ACCOMMODATION: Guesthouses at our Arts village, or homestay for cultural immersion

Our program promises high-impact learning practice, ideal for motivated college students and recent graduates seeking real-world learning opportunities to explore and generate design solutions in a location outside of Western culture. It provides you with an opportunity to immerse in the local Ashanti culture and collaborate in a design-build process that involves fieldtrip to local sites, discussions, and learning-by-doing on a building project. You will work side-by-side with local artisans and creative colleagues to generate an alternative using sustainable natural materials while furthering your knowledge of the intersections between architecture and rural development. Experience how a design problem, budget and site-specific dynamics such as materials, indigenous technologies and community can provoke resourceful thinking and hybridization. In the process, the student will learn to design what is buildable to make a well rounded graduate.

Interested? Then, contact: info@nkafoundation.org / www.nkafoundation.org
