MAC FINGALL mixed speechmaking with comedy as he brought the 39th NIFCA season to a close by exhorting Barbadians to aim for the high road.
The entertainer and educator delivered the keynote speech at the awards ceremony for the month-long national arts festival at Ilaro Court on Sunday evening.
Top performers were Rhea Superville who won the Governor General’s Award for her culinary arts entry; Audrey Watson took the Prime Minister’s Award for Best Original NIFCA Entry; and the Prime Minister’s Scholarship Awards went to Janine White for drama or speech, and Anya Stephen in visual arts.
Before the audience of more than 1 000 got to view a cultural presentation on stage, Fingall took them through what he saw as the things that needed changing in Barbados today. (GA)
