John Dramani Mahama, the Flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has unveiled his vision for Ghana’s creative sector.

The ex-President has expressed his intention to establish a paid television channel dedicated to broadcasting creative arts events.

He is confident that the platform will provide a stage for talented artists to exhibit their work and connect with a broader audience.

In addition to the television channel, John Dramani Mahama plans to revamp Arts and Culture Centers, promote Ghanaian films through film festivals, and offer tax incentives to creative artists registered with Tax Identification Numbers (TIN).

He believes that through appropriate policies, investments, and support, the nation can uplift the creative arts sector, empowering youth to pursue their passions and bolstering economic growth.

I had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with some incredible talents in the Ghanaian creative industry in Accra. It was an insightful discussion about the immense potential of the creative arts industry in creating millions of jobs for our youth.

By putting the creative industry on a sound footing, we can unlock countless opportunities for our talented young people.

That’s why we are committed to renewing support for the creative arts if given the mandate to govern the country again. We believe in supporting creativity and fostering an environment where artists can thrive.

As part of our plans for the creative arts industry, we intend to set up a paid television channel specifically for creative arts events. We want to provide a platform for our talented artists to showcase their work and reach a wider audience.

Additionally, we have outlined over 20 policy ideas for arts and tourism, including renovating Centres of Arts and Culture, showcasing Ghanaian films at film festivals, and providing tax breaks for creative artists with Tax Identification Numbers (TIN).

I am confident that with the right policies, investment, and support, we can elevate the creative arts industry and empower our youth to pursue their passions while contributing to the growth of our economy.

Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang and I are committed to Building the Ghana we want together, and that includes creating a vibrant creative arts industry. Let’s work together to make this vision a reality!
