M&C Group of Companies Supports Artreach 2015
M&C Group of Companies is once again delighted to show its continued support of the Cultural Development Foundation (CDF), National Arts Festival, Artreach 2015. On Wednesday 5th March, Mrs. Marella Devaux, Group Marketing Manager, was on hand to present a cheque for $10,000 to Mr. Petrus Compton, Executive Chairman of the CDF.
M&C’s involvement in the Arts began in 1979 with the establishment of the M&C Fine Arts Awards Scheme, as a gift to the Nation on its Independence. M&C is proud to see the continued growth of the Arts Festival under the patronage of the CDF.
The calendar of events for Artreach 2015 is extensive and far reaching and includes talent from the many communities throughout St. Lucia. This year, The National Arts Festival started its program in Laborie in February with a community festival and exhibition and went on to produce a steller performance on stage in Vieux Fort in celebration of St. Lucia’s 36th Independence.
One of the main goals of the CDF Artreach is to showcase the unique portfolios and talents of our young artists and to gain access to a wider audience, be it locally or regionally. One such talent is Gary Butte, a past participant of the M&C Fine Arts Awards, who is the featured Artist at this year’s Art exhibition.
The M&C Group of Companies wishes the Cultural Development Foundation every success with this year’s Artreach, and encourages the public to participate in this year’s events.
