Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has reiterated his administration’s intention to convert the building from which Radio Saint Lucia (RSL) operated on the Morne, into a film, recording and broadcasting studio.
The government shut down the station on 31 July, 2017, citing financial losses and unpaid taxes.
“The goal is to have a permanent facility there that will become part of Sir Arthur Lewis (Community College), in which we are teaching broadcasting, recording, sound engineers – everything,” he explained Monday.
Chastanet explained that the intention was also to teach film.
The Prime Minister spoke as he met some of the Dennery Segment artists to wish them well as they embark on a multi city US tour.
“So we can have professionals like these young guys to be able to go to a world class facility, but also to provide training for young people coming up,” the PM stated.
“We cannot expect to be competitive on a global basis if we are not mastering the techniques,” Chastanet declared.
He explained that part of branding has to do with how a product is packaged.
Chastanet said he was very proud of what the Dennery Segment artists are doing, and pledged to continue to support them.
