St. Vincent & the Grenadines
This report is an outcome of a UNESCO workshop on the Convention held in June 2016. It was prepared following extensive review of the various public documents impacting Cultural Policy and Government's social agenda as well as conversations and discussions which were held with individuals and umbrella bodies between August 2016 and January 2017. Entities such as; National Cultural Foundation (NCF), Carnival Development Corporation (CDC), St. Vincent & the Grenadines Association of Music Professionals (SVG AMP) and the Art n Action, craft grouping (AnA) were consulted. The report first provides background and then sets out the developments in SVG in regard to the areas of concern to the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions since SVG signed the Convention.
