The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

M&C Group of Com­pa­nies is once again de­lighted to show its con­tin­ued sup­port of the Cul­tural Devel­op­ment Foun­da­tion (CDF) Na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val, Artreach 2015. On Wed­nes­day 5th March, Mrs. Marella De­vaux, Group Mar­ket­ing Manager, was on hand to present a cheque for $10,000 to Mr. Petrus Comp­ton, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of the CDF.

M&C’s in­volve­ment in the Arts be­gan in 1979 with the estab­lish­ment of the M&C Fine Arts Awards Scheme as a gift to the Na­tion on its In­de­pen­dence.

M&C is proud to see the con­tin­ued growth of the Arts Fes­ti­val un­der the pa­tron­age of the CDF.

The cal­en­dar of events for Artreach 2015 is ex­ten­sive and far reach­ing and in­cludes tal­ent from the many com­mu­ni­ties through­out St. Lu­cia. This year, the Na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val started its pro­gramme in La­borie in Fe­bru­ary with a com­mu­nity fes­ti­val and ex­hi­bi­tion and went on to pro­duce a stel­lar per­for­mance on stage in Vieux Fort in cel­e­bra­tion of St. Lu­cia’s 36th year of In­de­pen­dence.

One of the main goals of the CDF Artreach is to show­case the unique port­fo­lios and tal­ents of our young artists and to gain ac­cess to a wider au­di­ence, be it lo­cally or re­gion­ally. One such tal­ent is Gary Butte, a past par­tic­i­pant of the M&C Fine Arts Awards, who is the fea­tured Artist at this year’s Art ex­hi­bi­tion.

Mrs. Marella De­vaux, Group Mar­ket­ing Manager of M&C Group of Com­pa­nies pre­sent­ing the do­na­tion to Mr. Petrus Comp­ton, Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of the CDF.
