Sal Rei, November 30, 2022 (Inforpress) – Boa Vista is the focal point of the 7th edition of the Handicraft and Design Fair of Cape Verde (Urdi) and proposes for the opening, today, the performance of living statues “Vida dum cabrer”, by the Casa Nova group.
The event takes place at Praça Nova, in Mindelo, and Boa Vista, which will be represented by seven artisans. It should also present, throughout the fair, a serenade on the island’s fashion, literature and gastronomy.
The director of Culture of the local authority, Leidy Barros, told Inforpress that the City Hall of Boa Vista considers that the choice of the municipality to be featured in this cultural event is due to the work that has been carried out in the culture sector. Namely, as she highlighted, “the success” of the handicraft fair held during the celebrations in the municipality of Boa Vista, as well as the presence of the island in recent years at Urdi.
To these, she added the professional recognition of local craftsmen, raising awareness and helping them register to obtain a professional class card, and everything that has been done to enhance Cape Verde’s crafts.
