GT&T plugs $10M into documenting national art collection
The Ministry of Culture and the Guyana Telephone & Telegraph Company (GT&T) signed a $10 million MoU yesterday to document Guyana’s national collection housed at the Castellani House.
The $10 million contract, signed by Culture Minister Dr Frank Anthony and Radha Krishna Sharma, CEO of GT&T at Cara Lodge in Quamina Street, is a three-year project which will digitise the national collection to preserve Guyana’s cultural heritage. Each year a special committee will be given $3.5 million to document 52 pieces of artwork. The first publication, The Panorama: A Portrait of Guyana, is expected to debut before the end of the year.
