The Gahu Project
The Gahu Project is a racial justice community music initiative in the Waterloo Region of Southwestern Ontario that brings together local youth, professional artists and arts organizations to explore and discover the music of Ghana and engage in participatory music making through a presentation of Gahu.
I am the principal investigator for the research component of this project. The research uses arts-based participatory action research to centre the voices of African, Caribbean, and Black identifying students in examining how The Gahu Project affects high school climates from a racial justice lens. The research component of the Gahu Project is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
