The Future of Ghana charity, will host a forum to share more information on this theme from keynote speakers from the Ghana High Commission UK and Ghana Government's Diaspora Affairs Office from the Presidency in Ghana.

Our forum will also host an esteemed panel who have either returned to or frequent in-between Ghana and the UK or have not returned for close to 10 years. An informed Q&A will explore 3 main questions How, What and Why?


Jude Yawson 
Writer, Poet, Film Critic, Co-Writer
Jude is the author of Stormzy's book "Merky Rise Up" and has been writing since 2012, with the aim of providing a perspective of life stemming from his culture and community. The ideal has been Black Britishness, shaped by a lack of representation and a paradigm shift that is witnessing a lot of Black creatives and business people who are establishing a normality for us. The idea built over time, through courses and witnessing others do great things.
