Emmy Frempong, Acting Executive Director of the National Theatre, said the festival would help empower artists and arts organisations to position the arts as a key ingredient in the recipe of cultural pride, cohesiveness, economic activity and vibrancy.
She said the festival would feature quality artistic performances and there would be something for everyone regardless of preference including drama and dance performances, musical concerts, visual art exhibition and many more.
Mrs Frempong, therefore, called on members of the public to patronise the festival and be entertained by the various performances.
Madam Dzifa Gomashie, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, said the realigned ministry had a mandate to provide a firm and stable policy environment for effective mainstreaming of Ghanaian culture and to ensure the strong emergence of a vibrant creative economy.
