6:25p.m. Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 – This year’s National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) was launched in grand style at Hilton Barbados Wednesday night.
Acting minister of Family, Culture, Youth and Sports, Ronald Jones says NIFCA is the envy of many countries.
“Many festivals across the region have come and gone but NIFCA persists as the result of being deeply embedded in our schools and communities because cultural opponents appreciate the richness which it brings to their lives and the lives of its various audiences. Barbados is culturally richer from this display of talent,” he notes.
Those attending the evening’s proceedings were treated to a musical presentation entitled Blue Waterfall Bird, by the group.
