Culture and Heritage

Culture is defined as “shared patterns of behavior and interactions.  It is a learned pattern of behavior in which a person lives his or her life.  Culture is essential for the existence of society, because it binds people together, and while it is visible though music, food, arts and literature, its essence goes deeper.

Cultural policies worldwide need to develop a broader meaning rather than the current narrow focus on the Arts, promoting and fostering creativity in politics and governance, and encouraging multicultural activities.

The Indigenous Peoples of the region have often lamented that the advent of modern techniques, in agriculture, for example, has de-skilled their young men, while in industry, their craft is de-valued.

Yet, today as the impact of climate change has forced policy makers to recognize that there was wisdom in patterns of livelihoods conducted by people living in rural areas, and their knowledge should not have been dismissed without investigation.  He call at the level of the United Nations is for an engagement with our Indigenous Peoples and rural populations, towards finding solutions to persistent poverty, and build sustainable livelihoods.

HERITAGE

Heritage is the full range of our inheritance, traditions, monuments, objects and culture itself Heritage is an essential part of the present we live in, and of the future we will build.

The Culture and Heritage Program will build awareness on the history and culture of our Caribbean people through research, documentation, and practice of knowledge and technology that will promote growth with development, and sustainable livelihoods.
