Thursday, June 8, 2011 Saint Lucia can now boast of being the only country in the entire world to house holograms of Prince Charles and Saint Lucia’s Governor General Her Excellency, Dame Pearlette Louisy.     The holograms are housed at the state of the art animation centre, dubbed “Our Planet Centre” which currently occupies the two top floors of La Place Carenage, and  replaces the Desmond Skeete Animation Centre.


“We have holograms—large size holograms of Prince Charles and the Governor General –which exist nowhere else in the world,” says Sarah Adams is the Centre's Executive Director

 “We have a special effects theatre which has a very good laser show and also it simulates some extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes and tsunamis.”

“We have a large sphere suspended in a large amphitheatre installed by NASA. On this sphere you can see exactly what happens to the planet over the last 7 days. For instance you can see the weather patterns, you can see air traffic, you can even see what is happening with facebook.”


The Centre is interactive in nature, and utilizes cutting edge technology to promote environmental awareness and conservation, both locally and globally.


The genesis of the project began three years ago, but construction had been ongoing for the last two months. According to Adams local contractors, as well as contractors from the UK were employed in constructing this state of the art facility.


The project was funded primarily by the German government, with support from various overseas corporations.

In addition to foreign entities, the project has tremendous support from the St. Lucia Air and Seaports Authority (SLASPA), and the Ministry of Education.  Ms Adams stated that the Ministry of Education was consulted in designing some of the programs for the Centre which cater to students.
