About the project:

The Cultural Development Division – CDD of the Ministry of Sports, Culture, National Festivals, and the Arts of Antigua and Barbuda, proposes to assess the economic contribution of Antigua and Barbuda’s cultural industries to national development in order to inform future cultural policy-making by: (1) enhancing the capacities of government and civil society representatives implementing, monitoring and evaluating cultural policies; (2) measuring the economic contribution of Antigua and Barbuda’s cultural industries; (3) identifying cultural industry needs and formulating recommendations; (4) creating a cultural information system to centralize and improve public information sharing and exchange. 

How does this project contribute to the implementation of the 2005 Convention?

  • Strengthens cross-sectoral cooperation in cultural policy-making and implementation – The project, led by the CDD, will be undertaken with support from other governmental institutions involved in the development, implementation and monitoring of cultural policies, namely: the Statistics Division within the Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Tourism, the National Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, the National Parks Authority, the Ministry of Information, the Community Development Division, and the Sustainable Tourism Department. 
  • Strengthens processes and mechanisms of public policy-making and implementation – The project will address capacity gaps at the CDD and other public institutions related to data collection, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of cultural policies. The mapping exercise will provide evidence to inform policy-making. The online database and cultural portal resulting from the project will contribute to centralizing and improving public information sharing and exchange, providing information on: key cultural industry sectors and players, cultural statistics, existing policies and opportunities, cultural industry trends, and local cultural events. 

Main activities

  • A four-day training workshop on the collection, interpretation and presentation of disaggregated cultural data, monitoring and evaluation methodologies, and modern methodologies of cultural industry mapping. 
  • Mapping of Antigua and Barbuda’s cultural industries. 
  • Production of a report on the results of the mapping. 
  • Production of a second report, with disaggregated cultural data, in which the key needs of the cultural and creative sector are identified, and in which recommendations are formulated. 
  • Dissemination of the reports to policy-makers and cultural administrators. 
  • Creation of an online database populated by data selected from the cultural industries mapping. 
  • Creation of an online cultural information portal in order to host the database and to disseminate findings from the mapping exercise, and other pertinent information.
