Chief Cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence says this year’s program will target persons from all walks of life.

“We are partnering with several other organization to including Discover Dominica, the Marigot Development Committee and Teyat Pawol to bring you DOMFSTA 2011. There is something in it for everyone including the adults, the children, there is also drama, film, music, poetry and many more. In fact people will find there are various offerings during DOMFESTA this year,” he said.

The event will be launched at 3 p.m. at the Old Mill Cultural Center.

    These things happen so silently, nobody approaches anybody to assist anymore? I would have loved to be an active part of the process, not just to hear about it on the day it is to be launched itself.

    As someone who has participated in the past, i am shocked that the DOMFESTA activities come so silently like a theif in the night, where is the call for collaborations with other NGOs that occured previously?

    I thought that Canada has a lot of/all sorts of celebrations in view of the multicultural society but Dominica has a lot of “Fest…” this and that. Well, have fun in sunny Dominica. You know the saying: “All work and no play make Jack/Jill a dull boy and girl – adults.” They bring fellow Dominicans and visitors together which hopefully will assist them to know each other better and to be loving and caring toward each other. May this work in the present and also in the future.
    God’s peace, fellow Dominicans!

    Hats Off! to The Cultural Division for continuing to showcase and preserve Dominica’s cultural heritage. Unfortunately our culture is being eroded by an onslaught of foreign influences.
    We need to support the activities of the Cultural Division to ensure the survival of our
    Cultural heritage.
