Are you looking for a really interesting festival to attend this year? Better yet, are you looking for a really interesting festival in a very unique part of the world?
Then, I highly suggest that you travel to Honiara, Solomon Islands, for the Festival of Pacific Arts which is being held from July 1-14. The theme for this year’s event will be “Culture in Harmony with Nature.”
This special festival only occurs once every four years. It is a cultural exchange that reunites people and reinforces regional identity and mutual appreciation of Pacific-wide culture.
It is considered to be a great honor for selected artist-delegates to represent their nation. This year’s festival is expected to draw more than 3000 artists and cultural practitioners from 27 Pacific countries will travel to Honiara to showcase their arts and cultures.
Please visit the Festival’s Website for more information, festival program, and the latest news and updates.
Island Culture Archival Support (ICAS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of records pertaining to the cultural identity of island peoples in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia whose national and public archives, libraries, cultural centers, and business organizations are underprivileged, underfunded, and understaffed.
The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
