Derek Walcott coming for Carifesta

The Nobel Prize winner
Derek Walcott will be
coming to Guyana for
Carifesta. Speaking to the
Stabroek News on
Wednesday, Dr David
Dabydeen who is on a
visit to Guyana said that
the renowned Caribbean
poet has responded
favourably to an invitation
to come here and give a
reading of his verse. He

has also agreed to hold a
master class for Guyanese
Walcott has in the past
expressed criticisms of
Carifesta on the basis that
most Caribbean govern-
ments do not provide ade-
quate funding for the arts
on a consistent basis, but
splurge it on one event.
His coming represents a
major plus for Carifesta.
