Pre-Opening Announcement-Celebrating Our Own
October 18
The Inaugural National Literary Fair organised by the UWI Open Campus in collaboration with the Vincentian Association of Artists Writers and Producers (VACAWP) opened on Tuesday in fine style. The highlight of the Event was the conferring on Dr.Edgar Adams the Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature by President of VACAWP, Rene Baptiste. The citation for the Award was prepared and read by the 
Association's Vice-President Mr. Cecil "Blazer" Williams.

In other news, the Garifuna Children Heritage Group from Barrouallie held the audience spell-bound with their fluency in the Garifuna Language and song, and with their rhythms of the drums and movements of their feet, moving to the Punta in particular. UWI Open campus was immersed in the Garifuna language - the native culture of SVG found ground zero @ UWI-SVG. - Rene Baptiste
