The National Commission on Culture (NCC) on Monday directed all Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to set up Cultural Advisory Boards, as required by the National Culture Policy.

The Board, according to Madam Janet Edna Nyame, the Executive Director of the Commission, would collaborate with and support the various offices of the Centre for National Culture (CNC) to initiate and implement programmes that would promote and deepen the country’s culture.

Interacting with District and Municipal cultural officers and staff of the CNC in Sunyani, as part of her two-day working visit in the Brong-Ahafo Region, Madam Nyame said national development would not thrive as expected if Ghana’s cultural heritage remained in the dark.

She said the District and Municipal Officers of the CNC played critical role in highlighting and showcasing the country’s rich culture, but added that the District Officers needed the support of traditional authorities and District Assemblies to function effectively.

Madam Nyame said it is the objective of the Commission to ensure growth and development of cultural institutions and make them relevant to human development to enhance Ghanaian cultural life.

She said the NCC was aware of the numerous challenges that hindered ability of the staff of the CNCs to perform but such challenges should not deter them to do their best as “these challenges are everywhere in the civil and public service.

“We should try to be innovative and creative to bring new ideas on board, things that help to promote our culture in our Regions and Districts”, she said.
