About NCAC

The National Centre for Arts and Culture (NCAC) is a semi- autonomous institution established by an Act of Parliament in December 1989 to preserve, promote and develop Gambian arts and culture. The 1989 Act is now superseded by the NCAC Act of 2003. The NCAC Act inter-alia provides for a governing board of eight members to control the management, property, business and funds of the Centre. The President appoints the members of the board who are not ex-officio on the recommendation of the Minister responsible for the administration of the Act (Minister of Tourism and Culture), including the Chairman of the Board. The ex-officio members are: the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Tourism and Culture; the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education; the Director General of the Gambia Radio and Television Services; and the Director General of the Centre.

The day to day running of the Centre is administered by a Director General, who co-ordinates the work of the various professional departments under the purview of the Centre.
