Government seeking cultural comments

The Cayman Islands government wants feedback on what will be the Cayman Islands’ first policy on national culture and heritage.

A survey seeking comments on what the public feels should be “vision, values and potential objectives” of the policy was put out last week.

The survey can be accessed online at Survey Monkey. It closes on June 30.

The survey information will be used, along with reports being compiled by half a dozen focus groups working to develop “a main situational analysis on culture and heritage in the islands.”

The data is due to be submitted to the government Ministry of Culture at the end of July.

Once it is created, the strategic culture policy will “roll out” over a 10-year period from 2017 to 2027.
