The Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, Senator Warren Newby, has said that the Creative Production and Training Centre (CPTC), has contributed much to the preservation and enhancement of Jamaican culture.
Representing the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Honourable Olivia Grange MP at a cultural concert in Emancipation Park in Kingston put on by the CPTC as one of the events to mark its 25th Anniversary last night (December 17), Senator Newby said it had been “a creative and culturally exciting 25 years of the CPTC.”
Senator Newby said the CPTC had “grown from what was the Educational Broadcasting Service in 1984 to become the Caribbean’s largest public sector multi-media production house and media training company.”
The Parliamentary Secretary said the CPTC was “producing content of significant cultural value and preparing practitioners to give exceptional service to the media.”
He said that the CPTC’s cable television channel, Creative Television (CTV) had done much to expose Jamaicans to new and emerging talent in art and popular culture.
The CPTC’s 25th anniversary concert dubbed “A Festival of Drums and Voices”, featured some of the island’s top drummers, choirs and performing groups.
