GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) – Guyana, through the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, is set to host Inter-Guianas Cultural Festival from August 20-25.

The festival, which is expected to showcase visual, literary, performing, culinary arts and fashion, was established by a memorandum of understanding between the three Guianas -- Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname.

The inaugural Inter-Guianas Cultural Festival was held in Paramaribo last year from August 25 to 29. A 40-member Guyana contingent participated and its presentations were highly appreciated.

The hosting of the festival was embarked upon with the aim of fostering closer relations among the countries as well as to provide artistes with an opportunity to discuss techniques and motivation and to provide the people of the Guianas with the values emerging from various art forms.
