A strong museum sector can help to reflect to our people who we are, where we have come from, how we might move forward, and how we connect with the rest of the world. It can be a point of communion for people of all walks and social classes. Our museums and monuments should be places of learning and discovery for both young and old, and a keystone of our development.
The President’s Committee on Museums and Monuments will present its finding in a report to be published in late 2020. Its remit covers: the history and the present state of GMMB; the organizational restructuring needed for GMMB; a new financial framework; a proposal for the management of its monuments and archaeological sites, as well as curatorial overviews of its museums; educational proposals; architectural interventions; and strategies for inventories & repatriation of Ghanaian objects.
Our civilizations and our cultures are of the oldest in the world and our museums should reflect that wealth of history, and be projections of what we are capable of for our futures.
