Cultural Milestones and More

The Cayman National Cultural Foundation has been promoting the arts for 25 years.

GIS Spotlight is at hand this week as the Cayman National Cultural Foundation (CNCF) celebrates a quarter century of cultural achievements; Cayman Brac and Little Cayman residents give thanks, and three inspiring local residents shrug off their special needs.

This year the organisation that gave us Rundown, Gimistory and Cayfest reaches its 25th-year milestone. Tune in as we pay tribute to its work and listen as CNCF veteran Henry Muttoo and his team speak about their on-going quest to showcase our extraordinary range of talent.

Then it's the turn of the Sister Islands. Last year, Hurricane Paloma wreaked havoc as her category 4 winds left both communities picking up the pieces. This month, following a year of steady recovery, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman residents united to give thanks.

Come along to Cayman Brac and listen in as we talk to residents. Hear Minister for District Administration Juliana O'Connor-Connolly speak about the road to recovery and beyond.

Afterwards, be there as Keisha Martin who lost her eyesight as a child affirms, "I am not blind--it is just an inability to see." Meet her and others who are showing the world what a can-do attitude really means.

Tune in to their surprising and optimistic views on disability, and learn as an occupational therapist advises parents how they can prepare children with special needs to stand tall in life.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.
