Fiji host arts and cultural festival
Taken from an article in the Fiji Times. Fiji will be hosting the third Melanesian Arts and Cultural Festival from 2 to 10 October this year in Suva. The Melanesian Arts Festival was first hosted in the Solomon Islands in 1998. Vanuatu hosted the second arts festival. The festival was borne out of a resolution in 1995 in which it was decided that members of the Melanesian Spearhead Group come together and share the many cultures and to create new cultural processes. The MSG participants of the festival are Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia. Preparations for the hosting of the 3rd Melanesian Arts and Cultural Festival would be launched on April 3 in Suva. Note from GV : Any visitors to Suva that need accommodation during their stay in Suva can use our two bedroom rental.
