NIFCA comes alive on Broad Street
A FLASH MOB greeted shoppers on lower Broad Street yesterday, when the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) took the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) to town.
Andrea Wells, chief cultural officer at the NCF, said the aim of the flash mob was to sensitise people that NIFCA was in full swing.
“Many people believe that NIFCA is only in November when we have launched since September. We are in the semi-finals stage right now and are inviting everyone to come out and support the artists at Combermere School from now until October 18.”
On hand to entertain the “mob” were the Tuk Band, steel pan band Pan Extreme, eight-year-old dramatist Tahirah Gibson, one of last year’s gold awardees, and Dancing Africa. Judy Lorne of Salena Spice Creations also treated patrons to local sweets. (RA)
