Efo Kojo Mawugbe calls for Ghana Government to support "live" arts and culture
Efo Kojo Mawugbe, Executive Director of the National Theatre of Ghana, has called on government to make Ghana's culture more attractive by positively projecting it as a living identity of the state.
He said culture is currently perceived from a taxidermy approach, making it look unreal or dead and unattractive to the people and even tourism. Efo Mawugbe who was addressing participants at the 62nd Annual New Year School and Conference on Tuesday said developing the cultural minds of the people alongside other development processes was important to build their cultural confidence and make create a total sense of belonging. Speaking under the topic: "Youth, Culture and Development", he said the youth needed to be guided to become responsible agents of change and there was the need to boost their confidence and liberate them from fear of the bondage of an indigenous and unsafe origin that is perceived by others as outmoded.
He said there was also the need to carefully modernise some cultural aspects of the various traditions without removing important aspects of wisdom and values to make them more attractive to the youth and other nationals.
