2018 Awards Announcement – Guyana Cultural Association of New York

The Guyana Cultural Association of New York is pleased to announce its annual Awards. They will be presented on August 29th, 2018 to twenty-one honorees in four designations.

The guide to their being chosen was our theme: Ma’iupe = Working Together. The Spirit of Solidarity within Guyana’s Festival Arts. It is meant to celebrate our various national features which are portrayed in different festivities.

An important criterion in the selection process is a clear connection of the nominee’s body  of  work to the theme. This is an imperative except in the youth category which is defined separately.

A review of the accomplishments of the other honorees confirms an array of festival related characteristics. The most prominent ones are in the fields of performing; festival; and visual arts. Other notable features are observed through the work of cultural enablers; an education change-maker; an education enabler; and a cultural performance educator.

The Awards celebration is a salutation to our compatriots who are working with much dedication to enhance our nation. We congratulate and introduce the 2018 Awardees.

Sincerely,

Ronald  H. Lammy

Chair, GCA Awards Committee

    My name is Keith Campbell. My parents are from Guyana. I am looking for my Paternal side of the family. Campbell is my step father’s name. My real father’s name is Leroy Marshall. He was born Feb 23rd, 1929. So I was told. The information that I was told about my father is inconsistent, with what I have discovered about the timeline of events.I need the collective power of the Guyanese Association, to assist me, in finding my paternal side of the family. I will send money, if need be. My birth family resides in Toronto. My father apparently had a sister named Penny. I was told he was born in Georgetown Guyana. My mother knew him in Guyana. She moved to Toronto in 1964 from Georgetown.
