An eight week workshop dubbed “Art in Motion” funded by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) came to an end on June 07, 2008.
The closing ceremony which was held on June 16, 2008 at the Nevis Red Cross Building in Charlestown, featured speeches, presentations and art displays.
While UNESCO provided funding for the workshop, the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) offered its support which included the provision of facilitators, facility and stationery.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education and Library Services Mr. Joseph Wiltshire represented the NIA at the ceremony and recorded his appreciation on its behalf.
“I must express the Nevis Island Administration’s gratitude to UNESCO for funding this important and timely project which sought to assist our people to develop their creative imagination and stimulate self reliance and self realisation. This sponsorship, I assure you, has enabled the Administration to continue its thrust of providing a holistic education for all of its people,” Mr. Wiltshire said.
He advised that the “Art in Motion” students comprised of teachers and leaders of youth service organisations.
