Contributors page including Kajsa HA
A new issue of the Dust Magazine is out! (you might remember I hailed the Dust Magazine last time it came out) And this time, yours truly is a contributor!
A blog post of mine on page nine in DUST magazine
members contributing to this issue are
Esi Cleland/What your momma never told you about business, Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah /Adventures from the bedrooms of African women and of course Kobby Graham is the editor of Dust Magazine.
The issue also has a beautiful cover photo of
Ghanaian musician Ebo Taylor by Tobias Freytag/FAD and several amazing photo collages by facebook celeb Adisa Abeba (a Tema resident like myself!) – all in all, both pictures and texts well worth your time.
Of course, this time around I am slightly biased…
When I first moved to Accra, I found the city boring, dusty and event-less.
Three years on and counting, I am not sure if it is the city that has changed or my network that has grown. Maybe both?
Yesterday, I knew of five interesting events happening simultaneously:
Ghanablogging November Meet-Up I arranged at cozy Cafe Dez Amis (former Afrikiko), a discussion evening with entertainment for diasporan Ghanaians and others at Golden Tulip Hotel. There was also a fund-raiser coctail at Bella Roma Restaurant in Osu, a first meeting for the new expat network InterNations at Rhapsody’s and the High Vibes music festival also opened… (click on link to see program for the following week!)
I smiled to myself as I hurriedly left the first event for the second, smiling because I felt like this was the first time I was actually missing out on something in Accra…
I only resent that events often are announced short in advance (some less than 48 hours !) and that there is no information central for finding out about “all” events (if there is, please let me know!). I believe that makes Accra rather boring for a newcomer.
What do you say, is Accra boring?
