The Walcott House has reopened as part of activities to celebrate this year’s observance of Nobel Laureate Festival.

As part of the program, a special feature of never before seen sketches and drawings by Sir Derek from the “Sancha Gaspard Walcott Collection” will be on display. These works have sat untouched for more than a decade and provide more insights into his dexterity in the medium of watercolor.

To add a new twist to the Walcott House exhibition new contemporary interpretations of Sir Derek by Mr. Cedric George and Mr. Niger Nestor will be on display. The exhibition will take place on week days between the hours of 10:00am to 4:00pm, and will include a tour of the Museum along with a question and answer segment for students about the life works of the Walcott brothers.

According to the Director of the SLNT, is excited about the development.

During the three week period, The Trust Director is hoping that St Lucians as well as visitors to the island can benefit from a number of exhibition tours which will take place in collaboration with the Castries Constituencies Council.

Walcott Place which is a collaborative initiative between the Government of Saint Lucia and the Saint Lucia National Trust, is designed to celebrate the lives, works and achievements of the Walcott brothers, Roderick and Honourable Derek Walcott, and to honour their artistic, literary and intellectual contributions to Saint Lucia, the Caribbean and the World.

The Walcott House at No. 17 Chaussée Road, will remain open from January 15 to February 9, 2018.
