$2.7M for 170 steelbands with no sponsors
By SEAN DOUGLAS Friday, February 14 2014
SOME 170 steelbands that lack private sponsors will altogether receive State help of $2.7 million, said Minister of Arts and Multiculturalism, Dr Lincoln Douglas, at yesterday’s post-Cabinet news conference at the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), St Clair.
He said TT has 100 conventional steelbands that are not sponsored (up from 96 bands last year) and each will be given $20,000, for a sum of $2 million. Douglas said TT has 70 single pan steelbands (compared to 73 bands last year) which will each get $10,000, for a total of $700,000. Douglas said Government is committed to the culture of TT and Carnival’s transition from a festival to an industry. “We consider that these commitments are very important,” he assured.
