NKA Foundation is a non-profit organization. It is an artist initiative founded in 2005 with focus on human capital development through the use of the arts. NKA advocates cost efficient approaches, professional development training, and open source sharing, as possible solutions to the challenges of rural community development in the Anglophone, Lusophone and Francophone African settings. NKA Foundation defines the arts broadly to include visual arts, literary arts, performing arts, design, film/new media, arts history, arts criticism, arts education, arts administration, curatorship, and emerging others. Its previous international projects entail workshop, symposium, community arts residency, design-build program, and art+architecture competition for a concept arts village. In Ghana, the foundation has two arts village sites, Abetenim Arts Village near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region and Sang Arts Village near Tamale in the Northern Region. A long-term goal is to create a network of arts village sites in the sub-Sahara. Each arts village will have a vocational skills development program for the rural populace and cross-cultural skills enrichment programs for practitioners from around the world. All together, the arts villages form an institution, the NKA Foundation.
