Minister of Culture in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Hon. Hensley Daniel and the Nevis Cultural Development Foundation hosted a Press Conference on June 12, 2008, at the Nevis Red Cross Building, to launch the activities for this year’s Culturama festival with the slogan “Participate! Make it Great! Culturama 2K8!”

Mr. Daniel, who was a past chairman of Culturama, spoke of the NIA’s contribution to Culturama 2008.

“From our government’s position; the Cabinet and the Premier and my other Cabinet colleagues, we’re in full support of Culturama and we have given the commitment to host a show by Tempo during Culturama. We are in the process of finalising these arrangements and we expect to have one night of the festival given to Tempo again to add that international flavour to Culturama,” he said.

Chairman of the Nevis Culturama Committee Mr. Halstead Byron, assured the public that plans are well on the way towards making Culturama 2008 bigger and better.

“Certainly we are satisfied at the stage where we are at right now in terms of our preparations.  All of our sub-committees, the Culturama Secretariat and so on have been working hard and diligently to ensure that we put on a very exciting and a big Culturama festival this year,” he said.
