The government of Dominica is seeking assistance from the Bolivarian Alternative of the Americas (ALBA) to upgrade some of its cultural facilities.
Culture Minister Justina Charles said the Old Mill Cultural Center and the Arawak House of Culture are two of these facilities. She said these two facilities are in dire need of an upgrade.
“We want to upgrade the Arawak House of Culture. So far the screen for the movies have been purchased and it will be soon here in Dominica. We know that we will be getting assistance with improvement in lighting and acoustics. We want to really improve the whole ambiance and the operations there. We will also be hoping to get a generator with that,” she said.
Charles said one of the biggest projects will be the upgrade of the Old Mill Cultural Center which will cost millions of dollars.
“We are hoping to have a hostel and steel pan studio, washroom facilities and all of that,” she said.
