She is presently serving as an unpaid Special Advisor on Museums and Cultural Heritage to Ghana’s Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, where she is monitoring efforts to reform the museum system.

Her major focus is how to make museums relevant to all communities in Ghana, not just a select few, and to transform them into spaces where Ghanaians can see themselves reflected and have their views heard.

She’s traveled the length and width of the nation, speaking with fisherman, weavers, charcoal merchants, farmers, professors, and attorneys, among others, about what they want to see and do.

This will be depicted in a film that will be on Ghanaian television soon. She’s also assembled a team of legal, financial, and structural specialists to examine the present museum environment and propose reforms to establish museums that are appropriate for Ghana.
