People’s Choice Award for NIFCA

Social Share

The National Cultural Foundation is making provision for more public participation in this year’s National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) with the introduction of a People’s Choice Award.
Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley made the disclosure this afternoon when he announced the public would be allowed to vote for their favourite entry in each of the seven disciplines covered in the festival.
Speaking at a press conference at his office, the Minister said NIFCA continued to grow as it brought out the brilliance of the creativity of Barbadians in culinary arts, dance, drama, literary arts, music, photography and visual arts.
Because of this, Lashley said he had instructed the NCF to look at ways that aspects of the festival could be packaged for export. (GC)
