The 2015 Saint Lu­cia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val cer­tainly lived up to its name this year by pro­vid­ing more op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal ar­ti­sans in var­i­ous as­pects of the cre­ative sec­tor to be show­cased. Be­sides the now highly ac­claimed Hot Cou­ture fash­ion event where sev­eral lo­cal de­sign­ers and mod­els made their mark this year, there were sev­eral other op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal cre­ators. One of the ma­jor com­po­nents of the Saint Lu­cia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val this year was the “Arts Vil­lage” at Rod­ney Bay, be­tween the JQ Mall and the Bay Walk shop­ping Mall. There, on a daily ba­sis dur­ing the fes­ti­val, lo­cal ar­ti­sans show­cased their work in paint­ings, ce­ram­ics, pot­tery, bags and other items which were also on sale. Later on in the day sev­eral per­form­ers in­clud­ing Ron­ald “Boo” Hink­son, Kayo and Michael Robin­son, had an op­por­tu­nity to show­case their tal­ent. The Arts Vil­lage also pro­vided a plat­form for up and com­ing mu­si­cians.
