PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago, WI - Associate Member state, the [British] Virgin Islands (VI) has sent a 'BVI strong' delegation to represent the territory at CARIFESTA XIV kicking off today Friday August, 16, 2019 from 6:00 pm -10:00 pm at the Grand Market, Queen’s Park Savannah in Trinidad and Tobago.

According to the Government Information Agency (GIS) via a post on the social network Facebook, the VI delegation is comprised of persons with skills from different aspects of arts, including poetry, dance, fabrics, photography, music, film, literature and visuals and they are expected to participate in several workshops and seminars related to each of their crafts. 

"The Caribbean Festival of Arts, CARIFESTA, has assumed a pre-eminent place among the elements that define and give expression to the uniqueness of our Caribbean reality. Like other significant institutions such as cricket, CXC, and CARICOM that symbolise a Caribbean commonality, the Festival reinforces our unity in the midst of our splendid diversity," event organisers noted on the official website. 

CARIFESTA, which has been hailed as, “the inspirational exchange of creative flows”, has its underpinnings in the staging of the first Caribbean Festival of Arts in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1952 and has spurred some enthusiasm in the Region for celebrating the excellence of Caribbean artistry.

The Festival has evolved and transformed over its forty-six-year history and it is expected that CARIFESTA XIV will ‘generate greater value for key stakeholders like artists, cultural entrepreneurs, regional governments, and the CARICOM Secretariat’.

The Opening Ceremony set for tonight will embody the diversity and creativity of the Caribbean islands and its people and the event will run from August 16, 2019, to Sunday, August 25, 2019.
