Martinique organisation seeks business interests in St. Lucia

Founder of ‘Association Kreol’ Danielle René-Corail

Cultural entertainment organisation ‘Association Kreol’ recently completed a Business Immersion exercise in Saint Lucia as part of the INTERREG Funded Trade Enhancement for the Eastern Caribbean (TEECA) project.

Founder of ‘Association Kreol’ Danielle René-Corail, who currently organises multiple shows in Martinique, completed the Business Immersion experience in Saint Lucia where she had the opportunity to meet multiple stakeholders in the area of entertainment and business development — including OECS coordinators of the INTERREG TEECA project, local artists, Export Saint-Lucia and the Cultural Development Foundation.

The two-day programme enabled René-Corail to initiate primary discussions on multiple matters, inter alia:

  • identifying potential business partners in Saint Lucia;
  • performing shows in Saint Lucia; and
  • providing support to Saint Lucian artists who wish to access the French-speaking Caribbean market.

“We launched ‘Ti Kreol’ 20 years ago and we have performed many shows in Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana and Paris over the years. However, we’ve never had the opportunity to perform in the English-speaking countries of the Caribbean. This is definitely a great opportunity for us which, I hope, will result in performing other shows across the region,” René-Corail added.

“Ti Kreol” will be performed here December 16th.
