Milne Bay Province will play host to some of our rich Melanesian cultures, in the coming Arts and Culture Festival.
The big event, to be hosted by Papua New Guinea, will foster and strengthen our economic and regional cooperation.
The final satellite launching of the fifth Melanesian Arts and Culture Festival was held in Alotau, Milne Bay Province, over the weekend. It was different from the previous three launchings, at Mt Hagen, Kokopo and Wewak. This time, held during the day, near the Alotau Market, has attracted more people.
The crowed said it all, ‘yes’, supported by the Provincial Governor, Titus Philemon, that Alotau is ready to host the event. It was an opportunity, the state minister responsible for culture and tourism, Boka Kondra, refreshed the call for the preservation of our rich diversified cultural traditions.
Minster Kondra encouraged the people to tap into tourism, as a potential income generator. The 5th Melanesian Arts and Culture Festival will be held in Port Moresby, including the satellite venues from June 28 to July 11.
