Pacific Arts Festival to Begin this Weekend!

This Sunday, July 1, is the opening day of the Pacific Arts Festival in Honiara, Solomon Islands, and will continue through July 14.  Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo will provide the opening speech. Delegates from across the Pacific have been arriving all week representing approximately twenty countries.

The National Archives of Solomon Islands is planning to have an exhibit during the festival. If I receive pictures, I will definitely post them here and on our Facebook page.

Here’s to a successful festival!

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.
