The whole world is going through a very difficult time because of a new disease that has appeared on planet earth and is called Covid-19. So many people have already died because of this new coronavirus, others are in intensive care and are fighting to stay alive. All sectors are affected by the impact of this pandemic. Many have become aware that culture is not only entertainment, but also an economy. Many cultural disciplines have been stopped by the authorities, so artists and entertainment workers are paying a heavy price for Covid-19 despite all the financial and other support measures taken to help them.
This situation obviously has negative consequences on the magazine Kariculture.net (based in Guadeloupe, French Caribbean) which specializes in Caribbean culture, but we have never stopped publishing articles to inform our readers, especially during the period of lockdown in force on the French territory between March 17 and May 10, 2020; three-quarters of humanity were in lockdown around the same time. There are not many shows, exhibitions or fairs, major gatherings for carnival or music, film or other festivals in the Caribbean have been cancelled, digital technology ometimes makes it possible to maintain certain cultural events.
Kariculture.net has, for its part, chosen to give more voice to our cultural actors by increasing the number of interviews a way to get to know them even better.
All the Caribbean journalists of Kariculture.net, your cultural magazine in French, English and Spanish, wish you a happy new year 2021.
