Policy & Advocacy

We consider policy and advocacy as essential drivers of developments within the creative economy. Considering this, policy and advocacy actions are at heart of the work of the Ghana Culture Forum.  We have been heavily involved in policy and advocacy work with regards to key legislations within the cultural sector. We were key players in the processes leading to Ghana’s ratification of the UNESCO Conventions including the ones for Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) and the Protection and Promotion of Diversity of Cultural Expression. We also provided the framework for the participation or cultural and creative practitioners in legislative work and advocacy leading to the passing of the Film Act (Act 935) and which led to establishment of the National Film Authority. We continue to contribute towards the realisation of the Legislative Instruments for the Creative Arts Industry Act 1048 and the Review of the Cultural Policy.

Ghana's rich tapestry of music, dance, and storytelling is under threat. Timeworn traditions fade, silenced by the echoes of progress. But at the Ghana Culture Forum (GCF), we're weaving a brighter future, thread by thread.
