Ghana ThinkTank at Queens Museum of Art

After a fantastic launch with Creative Time at the New Museum's Festival of Ideas for a New City, the Ghana ThinkTank's Mobile Unit will be operating out of the Queens Museum of Art all summer long, focusing on the problems of Corona, Queens.

The Ghana ThinkTank in Corona involves a custom-built teardrop trailer designed to journey into different locales in the "First" world, collecting community and personal issues, and sending them to think tanks in Ghana, Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, Serbia, Iran, Afghanistan, and others...

Once we receive the solutions, our trailer rolls back into the communities, this time as a mobile workstation, so that we can work with community members to apply the solutions we have received from our global network of think tanks.

The Ghana Think Tank operates in Corona May 21 - Aug 14.

Ghana ThinkTank in Corona is supported by the Queens Museum of Art, Creative Time, the Rockefeller Foundation, Lily Auchincloss Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, Black Rock Arts Foundation, and The Greenwall Foundation. Additional funding provided by New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts.
