The Creative Arts Business and intellectual property Consultant Benjamin Oduro Arhin Jnr known in entertainment as Bnoskka has appealed to the new minister and his deputy designate of ministry of tourism, arts and culture, (MOTAC) that we are looking forward seeing massive inclusive industry players participating in all government and private venture engagements.
Speaking on Kasapa 102.5FM Entertainment show with Abena Fila, Bnoskka said we have a history in this country where certain industry players are exclusively selected to engage government and private sector participation.
I humbly appeal to the minister and the deputy of MOTAC that their media engagement should not seen gearing towards one particular station only.
Also the ministry selecting expert for advice should not be limited to the usual known guys but i humbly appeal and suggest that both members of the opposition party and non political individuals should be explored and sort after for equity representation of creative arts industry practices involving every aspect of the industry.
Secondly, the industry should not be centered on music and audiovisual (Film), but attention should focused on clothing and textiles, the material aspect of folklore, and others.
Finally, the ministry should focus on doing feasibility studies to develop Ghana Creative Economy Report which is lacking in our country.
Creative Economy Report is a very profound inclusive document that will help diversify the statistical data which will portray the economic impact to Ghana’s GDP.
