Children look on as an artist adds the finishing touches to a mural on the wall of a ruined building in Accra's historic James Town area, Ghana. Artists, performers, skaters, BMX riders, foodies and fashion designers work together to turn the impoverished neighbourhood into a hive of creative activity, attracting thousands of visitors, during the annual Chale Wote Street Art Festival.

Location: James Town, Accra, Ghana, West Africa
