(Thursday, 11 October) The stakeholder consultation on steel pan in Saint Lucia has been postponed.
The Cultural Development Foundation (CDF) has announced that it has decided to reschedule the Steel Pan Consultation, originally scheduled for Saturday 13th October, 2012.
The Foundation was originally scheduled to hold consultations with Steel Pan Groups to hear from stakeholders about:
* The way forward for Steel Pan in Saint Lucia
* To develop and establish appropriate administrative structures for re-energizing and sustaining an Association of Steelbands in Saint Lucia, and
* To facilitate the adoption of a programme of action for the development and strengthening of the Steelband movement in Saint Lucia.
The decision made early Thursday morning as a result of the inability to confirm the facilitator for Saturday’s consultation, reflects the Foundation’s commitment to ensuring that the ideas and suggestions coming from the consultation has bearing on our proposals and the development of Steel Pan in Saint Lucia.
The new date for the Steel Pan Consultation will be issued in another release early next week.
