“These are the folks who will now preside over the affairs of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts,” Minister Samuda said at Wednesday’s (September 4) post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.

“The Board will take appropriate steps that are required consistent with government policy, and we get involved at the Ministry level only when it is absolutely necessary for us to make the kind of executive decisions that are appropriate. But we don’t interfere with the management of the institutions that are under the control of the Board,” he said.

The Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts is the first institution of its kind within the English-speaking Caribbean to provide professional and technical training in the arts, offering qualification at the Bachelor, Associate Degree and Certificate levels.
