The ceremony started with an opening cultural performance which was done by Universal Wonderful Street Academy and singing of the national anthem “Y3n Ara Asaase Ni” after that the purpose of gathering was announced by Mike Frempong the research and communication director of  The Arts and Culture Company. According to him the purpose of our gathering is to launch and open nomination for the maiden edition of the Ghana Arts and Culture Awards (GACA2019) that seeks to honor and appreciate the forerunners, brands and key players who have contributed greatly to Arts and culture industry here in Ghana and beyond.

According to Mrs. Edna Janet Nyame, it will interest you all to know that our Ghanaian culture is replete with power and wealth, yet what prevails today is the unguarded adoption of western lifestyles or cultures by most people, especially among the youth in the name of modernity leading to the adulteration of our beautiful culture and has immensely contributed to the gradual erosion of the values of power and wealth of our cultural heritage as well as the histories of most Ghanaian communities.

“It is the obligation of the National Commission on Culture to make contributions and give our support to any cause which focuses on upholding and uplifting our Ghanaian culture by way of promoting and presenting our Ghanaian traditions and values. It is on this note that the National Commission on Culture deems it an honour to associate ourselves with the brand that sees the arts and culture as a valuable asset to Ghana,” she affirmed.

The award plaques were unveiled by Executive Director of National Commission on Culture, Mrs. Edna Janet Nyame and said the awards scheme was in line with her outfit’s mandate of promoting Ghanaian cultural heritage and recognizing excellence. For her, in an era where western influence has dominated the local culture and has the youth forgetting all about Ghanaian values, GACA could not have come at a better time.

Eighteen award categories are up for grabs including; Art Festival Event of the Year, Traditional Music Group of the Year, Cultural Television Programme of the Year, Ghanaian Visual Artist of the Year and Cultural Heritage Entrepreneur of the Year, among others. Also included in the categories are honorary awards.
