Former Executive Director of the Dominica Festivals Committee Val Cuffy has been brought in as a consultant to help stage this year's World Creole Music Festival, following the resignation of St Lucian Claudine Springer.
This was announced by Tourism Minister Senator Robert Tonge Monday.
Less than 3 months after taking up the position of Executive Director of the Dominica Festivals Commission, Claudine Springer abruptly announced her immediate resignation from that position on the morning of August 12, 2016. She had taken up the job in June 2016, close to 3 years after Trinidadian national Natalie Clarke left the position.
Her first and last major assignment had to do with organizing the 2016 World Creole Music Festival, which is carded for October 2016.
Senator Tonge says while the resignation of Springer was unfortunate, the show must go on.
