The preservation and continued growth of Carriacou and Petite Martinique’s indigenous arts and culture are extremely important not only for the economic benefits but also to ensure that they are sustained.
That’s the word from both Ministers Hon. Ron Redhead and Hon. Tevin Andrews.
Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs & Local Government, Hon. Tevin Andrews, along with colleague Minister for Youth, Sports & Culture, Hon. Ron Redhead, made those remarks while attending the opening night of KIA in D Bagadere art exhibition. It was held recently at the Harvey Vale waterfront and featured local Kayaks who are involved in the visual and culinary arts and literature. Both Ministers pledged Government’s support for events such as KIA in D Bagadere.
Referencing local artist Jamil Frank from Petite Martinique, whose first public exposition at the event was in 2019 and is now doing well for himself, Minister Andrews said events like KIA in D Bagadere help to foster and grow young and upcoming artists.
The exhibition was supported by the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs & Local Government and local businesses.
