IT is no surprise that the just-ended 2023 Carnival festival lacked the creativity and innovation that the Government had promised for the first festival in three years.
That is because the PNM administration lacks ingenuity and imagination, and is incapable of inspiring flair and brilliance.
The management of Carnival is symptomatic of the administration of Trinidad and Tobago, with an absence of inventiveness, knack, and resourcefulness.
Festivals around the world are modernising and reinventing themselves for a new era of patrons, many of whom are well-travelled and have a greater appreciation of the performing arts.
The PNM is capable only of presenting tired old ideas in a system of confusion that consumes millions of precious taxpayer dollars.
T&T’s Carnival requires a renaissance, which the deadbeat PNM cannot provide.
