The 10th anniversary of every event is usually celebrated with a lot of fanfare.

organizers of the hugely popular Chale Wote Street Art Festival, would have loved to turn up the style as the event hits a decade this year.

Unfortunately, that will not be the case as COVID-19 has put paid to any such plans and the nearly 10-day event, which started on Friday, August 13 is going virtual.

A release from the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Gilbert Nii Ankrah, said it had become necessary for this year’s festival to go virtual because of the surge in COVID-19 cases.

It is also in compliance with President Akufo-Addo’s 26th update on COVID-19 where he advised people to avoid large gatherings to prevent the spread of the virus.

The release also indicated that all programmes lined up for this year’s festival will be broadcast on social media and other online channels and encouraged the citizenry to follow and support all the activities
