On Thursday, 17 December 2020, Parliament passed the Creative Arts Industry bill.

It is anticipated that the bill, which includes the creative arts fund, will ensure the economic viability of the creative arts sector within the economy of Ghana.

The bill would also become the first regulatory structure for the artistic sector to be guided.

Speaking following the passage of the bill, Babara Oteng Gyasi, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, expressed faith that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would approve the bill in the coming days.

In terms of jobs and wages, she also highlighted opportunities that the legislation would offer to players in the industry.

Subsequently, a creative arts agency would be set up to oversee the activities of players in the industry.

The creative arts agency, scheduled to start operations in 2021, will propose the creation of a creative arts fund to provide financial support for creative arts practitioners in the country in the form of grants and loans.
