A message from Accelerator Artist Yasmine Dankwah

4 May 2023


Yasmine Dankwah, one of our brilliant Accelerator 2022-23 Artists, wants to speak to British-Ghanians as research for her new play. Find out more below:

 Hi there,

My name is Yasmine and I am in the process of developing a play called garage girls. It follows four British-Ghanaian sisters who run a garage called, Mensah’s Motors, which once belonged to their grandmother, in working-class South London.

 Set between 2002-8 in the backdrop of the impending recession, garage girls is a comedy-drama that looks at inheritance both financially and culturally, by interrogating the ways in which Ghanaian culture exists, co-exists, or might cease to within British society. You can read the full synopsis, here

As part of this development process, I’d like to invite 8 individuals aged 36-46 and 8 individuals aged 16-25 to take part in separate discussions groups, giving you the opportunity to connect with another and share your experience as a Ghanaian growing up in Britain as a young person.
