Although Guyanese are anticipating Guyana’s 50th Independence in May, members under the Lloyd N De Arts Productions are hoping that their pageant and cultural extravaganza will be a unique cultural experience for all Guyanese to celebrate as they showcase youths across the nation with extraordinary talents in sport, education and fashion.
At their official launch, yesterday, at the St. Joseph Secondary School, members under the Lloyd N De Arts Productions, sat with this newspaper to discuss its first “Miss Cultured 2016”pageant and cultural extravaganza to be held on June 11 to July 02 at The Ministry of Education, Department of Culture, Youth and Sports Ground (formerly known as GNS ground).
The pageant under the theme: ‘The true meaning of a Cultured Guyanese Woman’ aims to promote ethnic unity through educating women on the existing cultures in Guyana. The platform of the pageant is based on Guyana’s culture and women who are confident and comfortable in their own skin of all shapes and sizes can qualify.
In this new style of pageantry, women battling for the crown can base their platform on Guyanese culture with the option of speaking in the Creolese dialect. Other segments include creative creek wear, cultural evening wear, creative cultural costume display, talent which can be their own piece or from a local artist in song, dance, poetry or music.
Only ten delegates will advance to the finals for the questions and answers. Contestants can download and print out the application form on the company’s Facebook page to apply until closing date April 23, 2016. A six-week training will commence on Labour Day, May 1 at 2pm to 5pm where contestants will be trained by qualified cultural enthusiasts in their platform, question and answer segment, and a special appearance by Ms. Alecia Bess for the catwalk training among many others.
Lloyd Thomas, director of the Committee said gates will be open at 2:00pm for the extravaganza and persons can uplift their tickets at the gate. Thomas urges Guyanese to be ready for the enriching event as he notes the need for the reviving of this nation’s rich ethnic diversity “It’s a unique cultural experience the entire family can enjoy from toddler to adult”.
He said that the day’s events would kick off with a 90-minute showcase of cultural folk fora, such as masquerade, drumming, dances etc… Children can be occupied with fun –filled activities like face painting, bouncy castles, and trampolines, merry go rounds, in the downstairs area.
