Ghana ThinkTank with US State Department, Morocco (2012)

Shortly after violence erupted in the Middle East over the Youtube video "The Innocence of Muslims," the U.S. State Department and Bronx Museum of Art selected Ghana ThinkTank to work as cultural ambassadors in Morocco through the smARTPower program.

Using a donkey cart transformed into a solar powered media center as our base, we traveled through rural villages asking Moroccans for help solving the problems Americans had submitted.

In partnership with Dar Al-Ma'mûn International Residency Center, Tassoultante, Morocco, October 2012.
