THE National Cultural Commission (NCC) says it is supporting a cultural and agricultural show to be staged in Wewak next month with K30,000.
Acting executive director Steven Kilanda said the Sepik Culture and Agriculture show had been certified with formalities done at a recent fundraiser event in Port Moresby.
“NCC organises events in partnerships with districts and provinces,” he said.
“As a process for certification, show committees had to pay K200 to register with the commission. We have certified the Sepik show and committed K30,000 for the show.”
Speaking at the fundraiser, East Sepik Governor Allan Bird said the show would showcase Sepik culture.
“East Sepik has 98 different language group and West Sepik has over 100 different language groups, together you have one quarter of the country’s languages region,” he said.
“We have a diverse culture, I don’t want to just build bridges and roads but build people with pride.”
