Former Chief cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence is commending organizers of the cricket games last weekend for ensuring Dominica’s culture was put on full display at the Windsor Park stadium.
Dominica hosted its first international event last weekend since the passage of hurricane Maria in 2017. West Indies faced off against Bangladesh in two T20 international games where West Indies claimed victory.
According to Lawrence, while sports are an important part of entertainment so is the island’s culture. He believes, the displays of Dominica’s culture alongside the promotion of Cricket in Dominica helped to market the country thus attracting potential visitors to the island.
Lawrence noted the display also promoted Dominica’s music, dance and costume.
