M&C Art Competition 2014
Friday 5th September 2014, marked the 150th Anniversary of M&C Group of Companies. A milestone that the M&C Team are very proud of and are very excited to celebrate with our customers, our corporate partners and all St. Lucians, with specific focus on the youth through M&C’s Art competition 2014. M&C has for many years been associated with the Arts here in St. Lucia and specifically in 1979, when the Fine Arts Awards was established as a special Independence gift from the company to the government and people of St. Lucia. The Fine Arts Awards was run by M&C for 25 years before it was handed over to the Cultural Development Foundation. This Art competition is the first of its kind for our company as it gives us the opportunity to specifically engage the youth through Art.
