Tuesday, January 11, 2005 - The spotlight is again being turned on two of Saint Lucia’s most celebrated citizens, the late Sir Arthur Lewis and Honourable Derek Walcott. Born on January 23, the two captured the world’s top prize for academic excellence, Nobel Laureate Awards for their outstanding work in their respective fields.

The late Sir Arthur Lewis received the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1979 and Honourable Derek Walcott was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992.

Every year since the last decade, their contributions have been highlighted with a week of activities starting from January 23rd to the 28th. This year marks another observance under the theme, Creativity: The Path to Excellence.

A programme of activities to include lectures, panel discussions and stage performances will begin on January 23rd with a drama production, Open Balconies by Floreta Nicholas scheduled for the National Cultural Centre at 7:00pm. Other activities include The Derek Walcott Lecture and the Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture.
