   Introduction  
Brief Profile

Adowa Dance

The National Commission on Culture was established in 1990 by Provisional National Defense Council Law 238 to manage from a holistic perspective, the Cultural life of the country. In the execution of the aforementioned, the National Commission on Culture is enjoined, among other things, to promote the evolution of an integrated National Culture, supervise the implementation of programmes for the preservation, promotion and representation of Ghana tradition and values; and perform such other functions as may be prescribed by government.

 
 
The Cultural Policy Document

This Cultural Policy Document is the result of many years of deliberation and discussion at several workshops and public forums.

It is dedicated to the realization of the Vision of the people of Ghana to respect, preserve, harness and use their cultural heritage and resources to develop a united, vibrant and prosperous national community with a distinctive African identity and personality and a collective confidence and pride of place among the comity of Nations.

PROPOSAL FOR INCLUSION OF CULTURE IN THE DRAFT COMPREHENSIVE LONG TERM NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR GHANA
I read the Long Term National Development Plan Vol I: Draft Policy Framework document with considerable interest; and I am convinced that this time round the approach of our development plan treats seriously the idea that CULTURE is a socio-economic CAPITAL of indigenous wealth, competencies and capacities.  A clear attempt has been made to bring the so-called informal sector into the frame of our national development strategy.

THE SECOND ZONAL WORKSHOP ON CULTURE AND THE MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The attainment of the 8 Millennium Development Goals largely depend on human attitudes, perceptions, beliefs, norms, practices and other behavioural patterns that have been cultivated over so many years. Therefore, given the human focus of the goals, one of the logical steps towards the attainment of the goals is to sensitise community leaders, civil society and other cultural actors about the demands of the MDGs within the context of their culture and historical experiences. It also requires generating meaningful discourse to the challenges posed by the MDGs to responsible leaders and social groups with the hope of defining the strategic approaches and modes of action that would facilitate the attainment of the goals.

CULTURE AND NEPAD
UNESCO recognises Culture as crucial to development and good governance in countries around the world. More importantly, it is now recognised that Culture can facilitate the realization of the Millennium Development Goals in African countries.

This makes it urgent to develop within the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) framework a strategy not only for defining culture as a strategic domain but also incorporating culture into all other sectoral domains defined in the NEPAD framework.
