Tough times ahead for creatives

Namibian artist and creatives are stirring a tough time ahead following the failure by the Ministry of Education, Youth, Arts and Culture to come up with a tangible plan to rescue the ailing arts sector which employs scores of young people.

Deputy Director of Arts in the ministry of education M’kariko Amagulu was was at pains to explain how the government are going to rescue thousands of artist who have been left jobless by COVID-19.

“We have several initiatives that we are looking at including online performances for different artist and creatives,” she said.

She reiterated that there is a need to emphasize a clear definition of the industry being broad without limiting it to music alone.

Amagulu also added that the arts industry is a major contributor to job creation and the economy although they are facing severe sustainable challenges.

She called for the creation of a sustainable plan going forward.

This she argues will rescue the thousands of artist who have been left with options but performing on social media where they can not monetize their artistry.
