Additionally, there will be live portrait painting sessions by Julia Shika Odamtten in partnership with Squid Magazine.
Artmosphere 2.0 is powered by different design collective which are Bee Hyve, VOME, ninety3 studios, Hook Communications and cr8tor. Partners include Pyria Gaming, Basecamp Initiative, Squid Magazine and Creatives Ghana.
dEX Artmosphere 2.0 will come off at Mak’s Place inside Dzorwulu. See the map below for directions.
