About Nyansapo

Nyansapo, meaning “wisdom knot,” is an Adinkra symbol of wisdom, intelligence, ingenuity and intelligence. The symbol conveys the idea that a wise person has the capacity to choose the best means to attain a goal. In this spirit we present the Nyansapo Economic Lecture Series in Accra, a shared venture of the Dei Centre for the Study of Contemporary African Art and NYU Africa House. The quarterly lecture series brings together high-level leaders from government, business and academia to share information about important economic issues facing Ghana. A typical gathering will include presentations from prominent Ghanaian thought leaders, followed by dinner and Q&A. Through Nyasapo, we aim to contribute to finding the most effective solutions for Ghana’s future.
