Manful wins grant to digitise endangered architectural documents in Accra


Kuukuwa Manful has been awarded a grant by the British Library Endangered Archives Programme for a project entitled 'Building Early Accra: Preserving Historical Building Permits in Ghana'. It seeks to digitise extremely at risk and vulnerable architectural and planning records in Accra, Ghana and to make digital versions of the material accessible in perpetuity for current and future scholars.



Kuukuwa will be working on this project from October 2019 alongside fieldwork for her PhD on 'The Architecture of Education in Ghana'.
