Concern about Caribbean artifacts in foreign hands
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, December 4, 2009 – Barbados’ Culture Minister has expressed concern that many valuable artifacts and collections from the region’s history remain in the hands of foreign collectors, universities and museums.
Steve Blackett says that Barbados, just like several other countries in the region and the Americas, had lost ownership of many vital aspects of its heritage, with several records still in British repositories.
He said there’s a need for the creation and implementation of a programme to restore such works to their countries of origin, a position which the Barbados government took at the Durban Review Conference in April this year.
