Defia was established in 2015 as the first gallery in Ghana to support only emerging artists. Three years after successfully creating a platform for emerging Ghanaian artists we decided to expand and include established artists.
To acquire, expose, promote, support, document, exhibit, interpret and preserve the indigenous Ghanaian cultural heritage. We also educate and engage the public on local, regional and global issues through art.
To become the leading creative hub for nurturing artists, inspiring imaginations, critical thinking and transforming people’s lives through art.
