Combine culture and tourism ministries for carnival – Bully


The head of the Carnival Development Committee (CDC) is suggesting that the ministries of culture and tourism combine in order to organize carnival festivities on the island.

Alwin Bully said on radio Tuesday that without that type of collaboration, organizers have to work for the success of carnival with limited finances and human resource.

“While the DFC (Dominica Festival Committee) is really responsible for all these festivals, there’s a limit to what they can do with the size of their staff, three persons, and a limited budget,” Bully underscored.

He said greater collaboration will save money and “I think we could do things a lot more effectively”.

Meanwhile the date for the official opening parade for this year’s carnival celebrations in Dominica will be held on Saturday, February 12, instead of Sunday, February 13, which was announced previously.

Bully said the change to a Saturday will be of great benefit to patrons and local businesses in Dominica, although many lovers of the ‘Real Mas’ have stated their preference for Saturday.

    at 17 years i already figured this out… i am not qualified, i am not an event producer but where are all the young people with the brilliant futuristic ideas? is the industry forever gonna be run by the elderly?… why not hire and supervise these ppl if you guys do not want to put them above you. I know many young people all under the age of 25 that can imagine, create and put together procedures for major festivals… we have alot of talent here in dominica, some people need to put aside thier grudge and envy and give these ppl room. they in the DFC know of them but they choose to stay with what they have… how long will it last? we can all share in the benefits… the dfc is small but they know that there are ppl who can assit them contractually… these ppl cannto do all the work themselves.
