The Dominica Festival of Arts (DOMFESTA) is officially prepared to begin, under the theme , ‘Building Communities through Culture’. This was confirmed at it’s offical launching on Wednesday 17th April 2019.
Chief Cultural Officer, Raymond Lawrence encourages all sectors to come on board for this year’s event.
“I feel all of us, no matter which part of government we work, we can all support each other. I think the activities can complement each other rather than compete,” he said.
This year’s DOMFESTA “takes on even more significance and importance as we are still into the rebuilding and recovering mode in Maria. I think we need to continue to use opportunities like DOMFESTA and the Jazz and Creole to energize and revitalize and rebuild the culture of the country and rebuild Dominica on a whole.”
DOMFESTA 2019 begins with a Concert and exhibition at Alliance Francaise on April 30th 2019 from 7:00p.m and will culminate with a DOMFESTA song contest at the Windsor Park Stadium forecourt on June 1st 2019.
