Major New Tourism Attraction Coming To Carriacou 

PR — The Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) is thrilled to announce its latest venture with sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. The agreement will bring a new attraction to the picturesque sister isles of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, setting the stage for the creation of a new sculpture park in the crystal-clear waters of Carriacou.

This initiative seeks to blend art with environmental consciousness, addressing the pressing issue of global warming and the impact of climate change on our marine ecosystems and coastal communities.

Randall Dolland, Chairman of the Grenada Tourism Authority, expressed his enthusiasm saying, “We are all very excited about this new initiative. A new sculpture park with a socially responsible message, located in some of the most beautiful waters that our nation has to offer and at the foot of the Grenadines, will shine a bright spotlight on Carriacou and will be prominently featured in our destination marketing campaigns.”

The upcoming sculpture park is a testament to GTA’s unwavering commitment to the development and promotion of the sister islands. This project follows stakeholder consultations held on both Carriacou and Petite Martinique, highlighting the importance of community engagement and sustainable tourism practices.

Jason deCaires Taylor, known for his innovative underwater sculptures that double as artificial coral reefs, is excited to contribute his expertise to this project. He remarked, “The fusion of art and environmental conservation has the power to educate, inspire and provoke change. I am honoured to collaborate with the Grenada Tourism Authority on this venture that will not only captivate visitors but also raise awareness about the urgent need to protect our oceans.”

Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government the Honourable Tevin Andrews stated, “The installation of a new sculpture park in Carriacou will have multi-faceted benefits: it increases visitation, enriches the cultural heritage, preserves marine life and creates jobs which will in turn stimulate the economy. We look forward to diversifying Carriacou’s tourism attractions.”

The sculpture park on mainland Grenada was the world’s first sculpture park and is one of the island’s most popular attractions.

The new sculpture park in Carriacou promises to be a beacon of eco-conscious tourism and artistic wonder, creating a lasting impression on both locals and visitors alike.
