Ese Ne Tekrema |The Teeth & The Tongue
The  Adinkra Symbol of Friendship, Interdependence and Strength in Unity

Founded in 2000 by Attorney Greer Goff Mendy, the principal activities of Tekrema are the creation, acquisition, preservation, and research of arts; the advancement of knowledge through arts education, training and research in the arts; and the dissemination of these resources through presentations, exhibitions, publications, and public lectures. Tekrema Center is an artist-driven organization, where professional artists are integral in programming and service to the community.

Tekrema’s primary area of service is the Lower 9th Ward, however it guarantees open and accessible participation to all.

Tekrema’s goal is building a legacy of art and community.
