Anarcisse was also placed in the top ten for actors while Cleopatra and Kazia Aurelien were placed in the top 10 for song writers . All Delegates including Andrea Antoine received offers for work and representation on the International Market.
” The experience was an eye opening one. The talents from the other islands and St. Lucia were breath taking. The opportunities that presented itself were broad and I hope to share some with St. Lucia.
The international scouts were hungry for new talent and were very interested in the Caribbean Style. It was very refreshing to see how serious the international market is about the performing arts and the possibilities of making a viable career from what most islanders see as just a hobby.
I do hope for the upcoming 2016 conference St. Lucia’s Delegates will get the assistance they need to be part of this game changing experience which the Caribbean is about to witness” Delia Louis, Manager- Blue Ice Entertainment and Regional Director to IslandMMTS.
