Emancipation Murals Unveiled In Castries


Two Emancipation Murals have been unveiled on Jn. Baptiste Street in the capital of Castries.

Award-winning artiste and muralist Naja Simeon portrays the revolutionary nègwès mawon and Emancipation heroine, Petronille Dwine, in his mural entitled Revolution, Emancipation, Celebration.

Master draughtsman and colourist, Alwyn St. Omer, crafted a piece that celebrates Saint Lucia’s past and present in an artistic essay entitled Now We Are Free.

His mural illustrates symbols of Saint Lucia’s compellingly beautiful landscape and the people of her ancestral past while embracing who we are as a people in the present-day expression of that freedom.

The Cultural Development Foundation commissioned the Emancipation Murals for Emancipation celebrations 2023.

  1. Thank you my brothers and sisters, now I can breathe a fresher air of FREEDOM, a new kind of air I’ve always hope was there waiting. While I’m at it, I wish purposely to congratulate the Artists in their design and colouring, their depiction of past and present and the hope of a brighter future. The talent we have always had it locked up in us, so let us not delay, but be free to show the world how beautiful we are, inside and outwardly. Thank you my LORD.
