Antigua and Barbuda has given the assurance that it is still committed to hosting the 15th edition of the Caribbean Festival of Arts (CARIFESTA), the region’s premier festival in 2021.
A statement from the Guyana-based Caribbean Community (Caricom) Secretariat said that the island’s Culture and National Festival and the Arts Minister, Daryll Matthew, gave the assurance during the recently held virtual 18th meeting of the Interim Festival Directorate (IFD).
The statement quoted Matthew as indicating that Prime Minister Gaston Browne and his cabinet are also committed to ensuring that CARIFESTA in 2021 was an overwhelming success.
CARIFESTA is expected to be held in August 2021 under the theme ‘One Caribbean. One Environment. Diverse Cultures’.
