Atlantic Crossing

Atlantic Crossing

The first integrated arts, culture, and entertainment district on the African continent
Atlantic Crossing will be the first comprehensively planned art, culture, and entertainment community on the African continent with overt linkages to the African Diaspora worldwide. Located in Accra, Ghana, the district is designed to establish a global position as the focal point for AfroPop art, culture, and entertainment. Visual art, dance, music, literature, theatre, media, cuisine, and fashion will be combined to create a unique destination with a global audience.

The design incorporated a full spectrum of museums, theatres, galleries, studios, live/work spaces, cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and art education facilities established on a world-class technology platform. These were combined with high quality hotels, residences, offices, shopping, and family attractions to create a unique and sustainable creative community that will refresh itself organically every day of the week. With the arts as a core organizing principle, once developed, Atlantic Crossings will continually renew itself.
