What can the arts do for young women and girls in Ghana? Around the world?
In January of 2019, Peter Atsu Adaletey provided a brief overview of his work in Ghana and the important role that the arts can play in not only building girls’ self-esteem and sense of self-worth but also in changing the way that society sees them by witnessing their transformation. Over the course of an hour, a community of practice begins to develop among the artists and teaching artists who were able to tune in live.
Precious Sefakor Amegbor and Sediname Delight Atsyor joined Peter to lead ITAC’s inaugural Think Tank Session.
For his work in Ghana with young women, especially through theatre, Peter was one of ITAC’s Catalysts in 2018.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
