CARIFESTA XIII is expected to have a long lasting impact on cultural industries in Barbados.
Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth, Stephen Lashley, expressed this view during a recent tour of several CARIFESTA XIII locations.
While speaking to the Barbados Government Information Service during the all- day tour of the various locations, Mr. Lashley stated that the scheduled renovations for the various locations would be the “legacy” of CARIFESTA in Barbados.
“The schools that we have earmarked for CARIFESTA, all of them have halls that have been used or are being used for events of various kinds. Many of these facilities would not have been upgraded over the past couple of years…the schools that will benefit from upgrades will certainly be in a better position to do much more…,” he noted.
