National Arts Festival: Artreach Updates

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:

 What Where When
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)

The National Arts Festival folks have tons more photos and updates on their Facebook page, so be sure to check them out!
