The Arts and Tourism Writers Association of Ghana (ATWAG), will hold a forum on the state of the Ghanaian creative arts sector on Tuesday, August 18.
The forum, which will be a webinar, will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. via zoom. The forum is part of the association’s goal to engage with stakeholders in the arts, tourism and culture sectors to know how they are faring, ask questions and proffer ideas on the way forward.
The speaker for the forum will be Mark Okraku Mantey, interim President of the Creative Arts Council and he is expected to take members through the operations of the arts sector.
This is just one of the activities lined up by ATWAG for the rest of the year. There shall also be separate webinars on culture, tourism, good writing skills and blogging before the year ends.
Apart from these, ATWAG has planned to hold an encounter with political parties later in the year and engage them on what they have in their manifestos for the arts.
