As in most parts of the world, our ‘temples of culture’ are under siege due to the lack of proper support on all levels. It is critical to create and sustain an environment for individuals and institutions who view supporting the Arts as part of their civic and cultural responsibility.

The discussion will begin with the aim of understanding its rich history and the role it has played in shaping the vision of post colonial Ghana, and indeed Africa .The evening will focus on sharing narratives and crafting a way forward with our esteemed and knowledgeable panelists, guests and audience.

The discussion will be moderated by Mr. Nat Amartefio, former mayor of Accra, whose work as an architect and patron of the arts brings important insight to this initiative.

“It is our firm belief that in supporting this most important symbol of our culture and history, there will be a renewed focus on the need for creativity, and appreciation of tradition, in our national dialogue. We will launch the FRIENDS OF THE MUSEUM, which will work together and support our hard working public servants to transform this heirloom into an inspired space and collective repository,”comment the organizers.

Date:  Thursday August 4th, 2011. 

Time: 7.30pm

Venue: Branche Lounge, Golden Tulip Accra

The panelists will include:

Mrs. Frances Ademola –artist and owner of Ghana ‘s first private art gallery, the LOOM

Mr. Seth Dei— Ghana ’s largest collector of contemporary art and whose Dei foundation supports various Ghanaian artists and indigenous high-tech initiatives. He is also a partner at Blue Skies industry, a pre-eminent agro-business based in several countries around the world.

Hon. Fritz Baffour, MP- Chairman of the Museum board
