Ghana Web: Ghanaian Cultural Website

Ghana Web: Ghanaian Cultural Website:

"The National Commission on Culture (NCC) on Tuesday launched a website aimed at providing knowledge on Ghana's culture and cultural heritage.

"The website would also educate policy-makers on the relevance of culture, especially on burning issues of gender and inform the public about the country's cultural heritage to enable them to treasure the cultural value in Ghanaian languages, proverbs, music, festivals, arts and crafts and traditional governance, among other things.

"The Royal Netherlands Embassy and the UNESCO funded the project. Professor George P. Hagan, Chairman of the NCC, said three things - formulating of culture policy, culture trust fund and creation of a website where people could access the Ghanaian culture - were his priority which he promised to accomplish since he assumed office in 2001."
