Seychelles: Launch of cultural prize in the heart of the archipelago

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture of Seychelles with at its head Alain St. Ange, organizes in late November the first edition of Culture Award.
The latter aims to promote the culture represented in all its forms within the various districts and towns of the archipelago, while highlighting the strengths of the Seychelles islands.
Several cultural sectors (buildings and heritage, artistic heritage, living heritage, traditional games and shows) and will be honored in November 2014 by a cultural award by a jury for each category.

"Culture should not only be seen as a form of entertainment," said Marcel Rosalie, Director General of Culture in the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
The Ministry of Tourism and Culture of Seychelles thus wants that culture is not only confined to his ministry, but the Seychellois people can take ownership.
