Policy Strategies for a Performing Arts Sector

  • The arts and cultural sector in Ghana are of significant public importance and have witnessed tremendous growth in the past. However, the general consumption pattern of the arts and culture has been transformed in recent years in Ghana. In this study, I analyze cultural policy support for a sustainable performing arts sector. This is because arts and culture have not received much attention from public policy analysts in Ghana. I examine the strategic goals of cultural policy and support for the performing arts in Ghana. I adopt a qualitative mode of inquiry using observations, expert interviews and documents to analyze cultural policy support for the performing arts. The findings reveal that cultural policy in Ghana encompasses diverse areas yet interconnected to achieve cultural goals. I, therefore, conclude that effective support systems are needed from the government and other stakeholders to boost the arts and cultural sector in Ghana.
