Please spread the word ! Dear friend, In recent days, a family of centuries-old Niim trees
have been cut down on the Cantonments Roundabout island. These trees provided both beauty and shade from one of the city's highest elevations. Many citizens of Accra have expressed dismay. The artists of the Foundation for Contemporary Art would like to commemorate the death of these trees and voice concern about the increasing destruction of trees on public lands.
They will stage an event to be entitled 'Art in the Garden-12: Saving Accra's Roots' on Saturday the 10th of February from four pm until seven pm at the Cantoments Roundabout. If you support this, please come on Saturday. Wear red and black, the colours of funerary mourning. Foundation for Contemporary Art Accra Ghana.
