FESTIVALS COMMISSION ROLLS OUT CARNIVAL VOLUNTEER PROGRAMThursday 19th February 2015
A call is being made on residents who are interested in the Carnival Volunteer Program to register at the office of the Antigua and Barbuda Festivals Commission.
The Festivals Commission Chairman Cliff Williams, is passionate about the program.
"Carnival is a major undertaking and our biggest festival so each year we look at our events and see where we need extra hands to assist in making it a professional cultural production.”
He adds, “Interested individuals just need to have a strong passion for the cultural arts and have a deep rooted desire in getting involved in the production of festivals and events. I know many college students who study marketing and events-planning would also find this experience beneficial."
The Antigua Barbuda Festivals Commission is in the process of creating a database of such skills, talents and experience to serve the country as volunteers.
"A broad outline of skills and talents we are seeking to attract are graphic artistes, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, stage hands, hospitality support, administrative support, cultural adjudicators, etc.", Chairman Williams explains.
Interested persons are encouraged to collect registration forms from the office of the Antigua and Barbuda Festivals Commission upstairs the Pigotts Mall during regular business hours. Registration is an ongoing exercise.
Antigua Carnival, dubbed the Caribbean’s Greatest Summer Festival will be staged July 25 – August 4.
