The latest initiative organized by Daily Project comes as more of a charitable endeavor rather than a clothing collaboration. In partnership with Off-White™, Surf Ghana and design studio Limbro Accra, the Amsterdam-based brand has begun piecing together Ghana’s first ever skatepark, that serves to underline its commitment to building a global community.
It will be known as the Freedom Skatepark, where Ghanaian youth will enjoy easy access to board sports and the friendships that bloom therein. Not only will the space be an informal hang-out spot but the creatives behind its construction hope to foster Ghana’s possible participation in forthcoming Olympic skateboarding events.
“With this initiative we hope to evolve the skate culture in Ghana to the next level and give locals a platform to grow their talents within a space that will hopefully become their biggest training ground to date,” said Daily Paper co-founder Jefferson Osei in a statement. “They now have a place where they can be themselves, freely develop their skills together with likeminded people and reach their true potential. Hence the name Freedom Skatepark.”
Along with the skatepark initiative, the partners have dropped a collaborative Surf Ghana capsule and Off-White™ T-shirt which will launch at Daily Paper’s Accra on December 21, 2020.
