RECAN-NW 2019 A Total Success

The event was highly attended

 

The 4th edition of the Northwest Arts and Culture Festival dubbed RECAN-NW, which rounded up last October 12 has been described as a “total success”, said Sadiou Moussa, the Economic and Social Adviser at the NW Governor’s office.

Despite the socio-political crisis in the region, he said Northwest artists braved the odds to massively participate in the five day event. He added this was a show of their desire to see peace return to the region and the country as a whole. He called on all to use our culture as a uniting factor for a peaceful and united Cameroon.

For five days artists from craftsmen, traditional waivers, painters, musicians, poets, spoken words artists, traditional dance groups amongst others exhibited their works and performances at the regional delegation of culture, Station Bamenda.
