Ghana ThinkTank is an international collective of artists that has been “Developing the First World” since 2006. They collect problems in the U.S. and Europe, and send them to think tanks they have established in Cuba, Ghana, Iran, Mexico, El Salvador, and the U.S. prison system.

Think tanks analyze the problems and propose solutions. Ghana ThinkTank then works with the original locales communities where the problems originated to implement those solutions whether they seem brilliant or absurd. By exchanging problems and looking for help in unexpected places, they flip typical power dynamics, shift points of view and build unlikely coalitions.
