much more for decades. The art sec­tor re­mains an im­por­tant ve­hi­cle for growth in Ja­maica.

As art im­i­tates life, so too can life im­i­tate art. We can bring about pos­i­tive changes in our coun­try by us­ing this pow­er­ful medium to in­spire our coun­try­men and women and con­quer in­jus­tices.

I am ex­cited about the fu­ture, as we move on to fully re­alise the po­ten­tial of our lo­cal tal­ent and our dy­namic cul­ture.

My hope is that as fel­low Ja­maicans, we will sup­port our artists and build our na­tion through the rich­ness of our cul­ture and tenac­ity of our peo­ple. ME­LANIE SUB­RATIE Chair­man Board of Man­age­ment
