The experience of the recently concluded CARIFESTA XIV will affect the State’s decisions on national policies and monetary incentives for T&T’s creative arts.
This is according to Acting Prime Minister Colm Imbert, speaking at the festival’s closing ceremony at the Queen’s Park Savannah last evening.
He says this year’s CARIFESTA was, by all reports, one of the most productive and prolific editions.
Mr Imbert says there were exceptionally high creativity and innovation and record investment by the private sector.
He notes that Government will convert its CARIFESTA experiences into tangible actions affecting policies and incentives.
The State also plans to revitalize rural and urban communities with cultural showcases and unique community-oriented festivals.
