Tribute to the Washerwomen of the North Coast

Look for the mural at the junction of the Arima-Blanchisseuse road (through the forest) and the Paria main road (along the north coast). The artist is Kenneth Fournillier supported by the Blanchisseuse Environmental Art Trust (BEAT).

At the function to officially unveil the mural on Sunday, April 18, Dr Marcia de Castro, Resident Representative of the United Nations and UNDP, spoke of the significance of murals, celebrating the past, marking a place in the present, and creating a vision for the future.

Ken's Washerwoman mural then, draws a line in the sand, and reminds us to cherish the wealth of the marine flora and fauna, the beauty of the shore with rivers and forest.

You can't miss it at this significant junction to Blanchisseuse.
