 Notes
Abstract: At concluding talks regarding CARIFESTA VIII in Guyana, the Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) lauds the original vision of the Festival as a means to unite the diverse populations of the Caribbean through the arts. It was originally hoped that Caribbean culture would be enhanced by more exposure and therefore sustainability for artists in all fields; pride in the region among all participants and attendees; and a stronger sense of personal, national and regional identity. He notes particular ways that vision has been fulfilled and encourages continued efforts to that end, noting the work of the Suriname National Committee in particular.
