Festival of Pacific Arts Update

Recently, I came across a commentary article by Annabel Norman who is acting as an adviser for the Pacific Arts Festival that will be held in Honiara, Solomon Islands from July 1-14, 2012. Her article is a positive look at the preparations that are unfolding throughout the town despite the challenges the people of Honiara endure from day-to-day.

Here are some pictures that I took in April of the preparations that are currently unfolding. The first three photos were taken at the construction site of the main cultural village where most of the  festival will take place.

This last photo depicts a building being constructed on the grounds of the National Museum.

About islandculturearchivalsupport

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.
