Artist dissatisfied with arrangements to accommodate regions artistic talent at Carifesta XI
Carifesta XI is in full swing with events showcasing the cultural kaleidoscope of the region at the various venues, but one artist is not so happy with the arrangements to accommodate the region’s artistic talent. Bernadette Persaud is the Guyana outstanding Artist on show and she said that for years now the arrangements put in place to showcase artistic talents have fallen short of expectations.
Ms. Persaud noted that she wanted to create a rainforest effect in the section allocated to her but this was just not possible. She said this is even as numerous efforts were made to get information on space availability ahead of time.
Persaud said that while the whole concept of Carifesta is very praiseworthy, she does not think the region is fully equipped to pull off the event as envisaged, taking into account the sheer numbers of the delegations.
Ms. Persaud is still hopeful that the concerns which have been expressed for awhile will now be looked at with a view to making the necessary adjustments.
