Minister cuts sod for modern Amphitheatre in Kumasi

Mr. Mark Okraku Mantey, Deputy Minister for Culture and Creative Arts, has cut the sod for the commencement of a state-of-the-art Amphitheatre project in Kumasi.

The project is expected to be completed within three months from commencement.

He explained that the initiative was in fulfillment of the 2016 campaign promised of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to the Deputy Minister, the facility, when completed, could take a maximum of one thousand people.

He noted that one cannot talk about tourism without creative arts, hence, the need for all stakeholders in the industry to join hands in support and the success of the project.

He stated that the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had done tremendously well towards improving the welfare of the creative industry.

He mentioned some of the achievements of the Akufo-Addo-led government in the industry as the creation of the Creative Fund, which had been approved by the Public Commission.

The Deputy Minister said the government was determined to build theatres across the country for the industry.

Mr. Samuel Pyne, Mayor of Kumasi, commended the Ministry for the siting of the project.

He urged the industry players, and Ghanaians as a whole, to take the industry as serious business to create jobs.

The Mayor said the theatre was special and would benefit the people of Kumasi, such that it would serve as a very huge source of income for the nation.
