Elisabeth Efua Sutherland

Ghana

Curator Fak'ugesi Curator African Digital Art
Elisabeth Efua Sutherland works from a mixed background in cultural event programming, arts education, theatre & performance, as well as from a habit of experimentation in new media, visual arts, and digital technology. She is increasingly concerned with interactivity, video, sculpture and texture in making performance/performative objects. She is interested in the way culture can shape identity and development, and in the impact that active cultural curation can potentially have on individual and national attitudes.

Her current research interests around identity, and hyper-locality as a means of broad connection fuel her approach to creation and curation in the African physical and digital/virtual landscape. Efua is the founder of artist-led space Terra Alta, as well as the co-director and co-founder of the Accra Theatre Workshop.
