Grants to this Grantee
for the 2021 50 Arts Commissions for folk and traditional arts  
In recognition of the Hewlett Foundation’s 50th anniversary, the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions initiative supports the creation and premiere of 50 exceptional works of performing arts. This grant will support the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts in commissioning, developing, and presenting “Hogbetsotso — Day of Crossing Over,” a work by choreographer and drummer C.K. Ladzekpo. The work will reenact the Anlo-Ewe people’s historic flight from servitude in Togo, and ultimately from European coastal raiders, to freedom in Ghana. The performance will include dance, music, regalia, and ceremonies for the renewal of justice.
