Sint Maarten: Evening of Culture
On the occasion of OCTA Innovation Regional Workshop 5-7 October in Sint Maarten, Innovation Managers were invited to participate at the impressive show at the National Institute of Arts (NIA) and in particular at its performing arts section.
With multiple international awards, NIA has greatly contributed to worldwide publicity of Sint Maarten and Caribbean arts.
The National Institute of Arts was born by the merging of two of St. Maarten’s most prestigious and oldest artists training centers. Founded by Arlene Halley and Clara Reyes provides national and international recognized interdisciplinary art education inspired by the principals of nation building.
Special thanks for organising the meeting to Ms Jorien Wuite, Secretary General Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports, Government of Sint Maarten, and Mr Hasani Ellis, Innovation Manager.
