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.
