The Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC), an agency of the Ministry of Youth & Culture is reporting significant savings on rental costs and improved efficiency in the execution of its productions since the CHASE Fund provided funding for a Box truck, sound equipment, multimedia projector, projector screens and 2,000 chairs. The equipment was handed over recently by CHASE CEO, W. Billy Heaven at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre.
The Commission is working towards becoming financially viable in the production of its annual events which include activities related to the annual Festival of the Arts and National Independence Celebrations.
The truck and equipment were acquired at a cost of J$14.3 million. An elated Dorrett Thaxter, JCDC Arts Development & Training Director thanked the CHASE Fund for responding to the JCDC’s application for funding to acquire the vehicle and equipment
