ACCRA, ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST PLACES OF 2021
Like every year, Time Magazine has published the 100 best destinations in the world for 2021. We are pleased to note the presence of Accra, among these destinations. With the following reasons:
“Accessing the Ghanaian capital has become even easier this year, with last fall’s debut of Qatar Airways flights from Doha and new thrice-weekly United Airlines service from Washington, D.C. And there are plenty of openings to help fill an itinerary: ADA, a contemporary gallery that launched late last year, showcases the work of emerging creatives—such as paintings by Nigerian artist Eniwaye Oluwaseyi and South African artist Zandile Tshabalala—from across Africa. A new architecture school, the African Futures Institute (AFI) debuts at the end of July, with a focus on cultivating regional talent. The AFI is the brainchild of Lesley Lokko, the founder and director of the Graduate School of Architecture in Johannesburg, in collaboration with award-winning Ghanaian architect David Adjaye. And next year, the Pan African Heritage World Museum is scheduled to open. It will house archives, exhibits, galleries and a theater, with the aim of being a key destination for visitors interested in connecting with Africa’s history and its people’s heritage.
