The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Marc­hand branch of the Saint Lu­cia Li­brary Ser­vices will be host­ing an Easter Arts Fi­esta on April 14-15. The Marc­hand Li­brary is housed in the En­tre­pot Hu­man Re­source Cen­tre and caters for schools and res­i­dents in Marc­hand, En­tre­pot and sur­round­ing ar­eas, in­clud­ing Wa­ter­works Road and Ba­gatelle.

The Easter Arts Fi­esta, di­rected at stu­dents on Easter va­ca­tion, will com­prise two seg­ments. The first seg­ment which runs from 9am-12 noon is di­rected at teens and young adults and will fea­ture some of the best of Saint Lu­cia’s young spo­ken artists in­clud­ing Black Crayon, TK Da Boss and Soyah Se­lassi. As part of the ac­tiv­ity, mu­si­cians such as Asher Small and Po­etry Cen­tral (a band) will also en­gage the au­di­ence. Stu­dents will there­fore have an op­por­tu­nity to lis­ten to and learn from those artistes.

The sec­ond seg­ment which runs from 1pm-3pm will of­fer train­ing to chil­dren in craft­mak­ing. The fa­cil­i­ta­tor of this ac­tiv­ity will be Miss Eva Wil­liams, teacher at the Vide Bouteille Pri­mary School.

The or­ga­nizer of Easter Arts Fi­esta, Li­brar­ian Miss Oli­viann Weekes, be­lieves that not only can Arts in­spire young peo­ple to be­come more cre­ative but it can also gen­er­ate a deeper in­ter­est in gen­res of lit­er­a­ture such as po­etry and sto­ry­telling.

Per­sons reg­is­ter­ing for this ac­tiv­ity should con­tact the Cen­tral Li­brary or Oli­viann Weekes at 726 3699/ email: Olivi­weekes@gmail.com

Thank you for all the de­light­ful en­tries in our Easter pets com­pe­ti­tion. Many were pic­tured mas­querad­ing as bun­nies in­clud­ing our win­ner, Max who was re­lieved to find out that the photo shoot wasn’t an au­di­tion for a stint at the Play­boy man­sion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Max!
