Monday, August 23, 2004 – The Creole Language will soon receive a double dose of empowerment and international exposure.

This is the expected outcome of the Francophone CARDICIS workshop designed to assist the Caribbean region in breaking down communication barriers caused by language and cultural differences.

Deirdre Williams, one of the organizers of the workshop said that the event would draw participants from across the globe, to examine the idea of computer communication using the dominant languages of the region.

“The meeting emphasises civil society and will happen in four languages - Spanish, French, English and St. Lucian Creole. This happening really empowers Creole and will also empower St. Lucia as a venue for this type of activity. People are coming from all over the region, from North America, from Europe and from Africa,” Ms. Williams said.

Participants of the workshop will have to arrive at joint positions that encompass a vision of an integrated Caribbean in the context of facilitating shared knowledge societies.

The workshop will take place from the 30th of August to the 1st of September 2004 at the Bay Gardens Hotel in Saint Lucia. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is also playing an integral role in ensuring the successful execution of the workshop.
