In The Message: Adinkra Symbols – Meditation & Writing (for BIPOC)

Adinkra symbols are West African proverbs or messages shown through visual symbolism, created by the Akan people of Ghana. In this class, we will focus on four of the many symbols. We will connect with these ancient visual proverbs to see how they influence our modern-day life. We will incorporate meditative practices that align with the meaning of these symbols and generate multi-genre work.
