Here you see a young man of maybe 11 wearing one of the old age masks made for the children of Liberia, brought to Ghana by Jasmine Blanks. Masks by Waxing Moon Masks. Jasmine brought 39 masks, disinfectant wipes, a 10 video series, and instructor training manuals with her in order to train students of her program, B4 Youth Theatre, in mask performance. Before getting to Liberia in the summer of 2015, she stopped here in Ghana to give this workshop to students as a part of Orphan Aid and to try out the masks. She said the students were very excited to play!
In 2016, Tara will travel to Liberia to work with youth instructors in 2 B4 Youth Training sites and offer a workshop at the local upper high school/college in Kakata.
