Saint Lucia’s National Arts Festival has been running since February 20th, with events continuing until April 7th. This year, the Cultural Development Foundation decided to decentralize the celebrations into the communities. This was done in hopes of expanding public participation in and access to the events on the schedule.
Early signs indicate that this strategy has been somewhat successful. Community Festivals have been held in Soufriere and Vieux-Fort, with more to come around the island. This weekend, the festivities continue – check out the schedule below:
|Community Festival||Anse-La-Raye Square||8 March (11 am – 9 pm)|
|Film Night||Desrisseaux||9 March (evening)|
|Creative Writing Master Session||CDF Conference Room||9 March (10 am – 1 pm)|
