The maiden edition of SPAA Media’s arts festival, ‘Tapioca’ to promote the Ada State has been launched with the aim of promoting tourism, its allied businesses, services and culture.
The festival scheduled for 29th March to 2nd April, 2018 is aimed at bringing together that unique blend of tourism and arts to the delight of patrons from Ghana and abroad for the promotion of tourism.
Through arts exhibition and investment promotions, organizers of ‘Tapioca’ hope to, through the festival, create a unique tourism destination.
Other activities lined up for the festival are; a health fair, where participants will be taking through some screening to check their health conditions and where necessary recommend medications.
Since health literacy is a challenge in Ghana, the platform will be used to educate people on basic healthcare.
Another activity is educating participants and community members on beach sanitation. This activity is aimed at improving the sanitary conditions at the beach to inspire high patronage and attract both tourists and investors.
This event will take place in all villages along the sea and organizers are confident that the education will help discourage open defecation.
A business forum will also be held to help build the capacity of business owners to enable them take their businesses to a globally competitive level.
The youth will also be trained on how to make liquid and bar soaps, disinfectants among others.
Other activities are history fair, food fair, a tour train, beach sports and street arts.
All these activities will be crowned with the excellence awards.
The award is aimed at recognizing and awarding excellence of individuals, companies and groups for their contributions to the development of the Ada state.
This will encourage hard work and devotion to duty, inspire others to aspire and contribute to the development of Ada.
