The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has commenced discussions with members of the Rastafarian community in Jamaica on the issue of the preservation of Rastafarian intangible cultural heritage. 

Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.
