Following the screening, there will be a live discussion with Tabi Bonney and Dine Diaspora about the connections between food, travel and art.

"FoodieVenture: Accra" Film

This short documentary film showcases some of the brightest minds disrupting the food and beverage scene in Accra, Ghana. The Dine Diaspora team -  Maame Boakye, Nana Ama Afari-Dwamena, and Nina Oduro - traveled from Washington, DC to Accra to meet these culinary pioneers in this bustling city. From creative drinks by Havana Grand Prix 3rd Place Winner, Johnson "Ace Bartender", to a unique nomadic Fulani dining experience by Chef Binta and delicious twist on a traditional snack by entrepreneur, Jamie Saleeby's Sankofa Snack Foods, this film is for the culinary inquisitive and the travel aficionado.

 

 "Le Bon Voyage: Beneath the Clouds" Portrait Collection

This exhibit highlights the Surma people of the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia. They are known for their elaborate body paint and impressive lip discs, a sign of beauty and status, particularly for the women. The Surma are semi-nomadic cattle herders who live on the west side of the Omo River - a remote area still underdeveloped.  The building of dams and the establishment of national parks offer promise, but also have the potential to further jeopardize the livelihood of the Surma. For these reasons, the Surma people are considered a “disappearing tribe.” Their culture and way of life may not survive another 10 years. 

 

Tabi Bonney 

Born in Togo, West Africa and raised in Washington, DC,Tabi Bonney follows in the footsteps of his activist-musician father, Togo born Itadi Bonney, who spent his life focused on one mission: to bring the “music” of “home” to the US. As an artist in music, Tabi earns domestic and global radio and TV exposure, and has performed on stages wordwide. An entrepreneur, Tabi produced and distributed his own fashion line, bonneyrunway, which would lead to collaborations featuring product designs with African fabrics and prints. Like his father, Tabi finds himself expressing about “home.” Through his portraits on display, Tabi is expressing one of the most magical and stunning “homes” he’s ever visited.
