Port of Spain, Trinidad (August 16, 2019) —St. Kitts and Nevis delegation members at Carifesta 14 in Trinidad and Tobago intend to “step out and show up” as the regional expo starts, despite not having most of their equipment and products because of shipping challenges.
The majority of the items are not expected to reach Trinidad and Tobago from St. Kitts and Nevis until early next week.
Director of Culture Troy Bif Mills has indicated that delegates are seeing past the setback and are committing to impactful representation.
While busying himself, along with a team that consists of senior officials from the Ministry of Tourism, the National Carnival Committee, the Ministry of Culture, and the Nevis Cultural Development Foundation, to find immediate fixes in the interim, Mills took the opportunity to express appreciation to CARIFESTA organizers in relation to their hospitality.
CARIFESTA, which is the region’s premier cultural exhibition, features music, dance, visual arts, literary arts, film, theatre and fashion.
CARIFESTA runs from August 16 to 25.
