Gov't releases GHc1 million to enhance Creative Arts

Minister for Tourism, Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare

The Minister of Tourism Culture and Creative Arts, Mrs Elizabeth Ofosu Adjare, made this known during a working visit to members of the Creative Arts industry in the Central Region to assess their challenges and find possible solutions.

Her visit was also to sensitise the region on the Creative Arts Bill currently in parliament before it will be passed.

In this regard, the Central region, she said, would have a secretariat which will educate members of the creative arts on the Bill.

Members of the Creative Arts in the region were also urged to draft proposals which will enable them access the funds in their region.


The Creative Arts industry has, over the years, been complaining of being relegated to the background by governments in terms of funding support for their activities.

It is the hope by industry players that the Creative Arts Bill would be passed soon to address their concerns.
