  • Welcome to the GCF Website, Culture we dey chop!

    The Ghana Culture Forum (GCF) is a membership-based civil society consultative forum. It is a network of cultural practitioners, activists and organisations united around a common vision of affirming the cultural foundations of development and enhancing the cultural sector.
  • The Initiative

    The Ghana Culture Forum was proposed and initiated at the UNESCO Consultative Forum on the “Power of Culture in Development” held at the erstwhile African Royal Beach Hotel, Nungua – Accra, on 28th April 2011. It became clear at the forum that the time was long past for a Civil Society Advocacy Forum on Cultural Heritage to be formed to pursue and intervene on issues related to the domain and its place in overall national development policies.
  • Our Diverse Culture & People

    The GCF envisions itself as a platform that ensures a sense of collective ownership and the development of a critical mass of cultural practitioners committed to the affirmation of the Ghanaian and African cultural heritage and the development of national culture.
