In an interview held by City FM’s Frema Adunyame and Nana Tuffour Boateng on the Upside down show with The Information Minister-designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah as the host, concerning Ghana’s creative arts Industry. The information Minister revealed that Ghana’s limited resources make it almost impossible to actually fund the creative arts industry hence, a different approach should be used to help raise the level of Ghana’s creative arts industry.
When asked about the state of the industry, he stated “I think we can do with a lot more support and injection but if you look at the limited resource base of the country, when we chop it up, creative arts gets very little. But I think that if we find innovative ways of raising money and setting up funds for people with talents and ideas to tap into those funds and fuel their ideas and be able to pay back because of the global markers that exist, it will create a lot more jobs and give room for people to be a lot more expressive about their talent and will be able to move the Ghanaian Afrocentric conversation into global levels”
It’s definitely not going to be easy getting enough funds with this strategy but we can only hope for a better Ghana.
