St. Maarten- This Thursday and Friday, Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams will deliver the keynote address at the young TV Producers’ workshop at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort Unesco organizes together with the Caribbean Broadcasting Media Partnership.

The objective of the workshop is to develop the capacities of 30 young Caribbean television producers in the making of high quality television programming, enable St. Maarten to be part of an international network of TV professionals engaged in HIV prevention and increase the number of credible programs for license-free exchange worldwide.

Two local TV producers from the Department of Communication Hubert Flanders and Ruby Pierre-Louis were selected to attend the workshop on behalf of St. Maarten.

Flanders and Pierre-Louis will be among TV producers from 16 countries in the Caribbean who should produce programs on priority issues in HIV prevention including multiple concurrent partnerships, low levels of condom use, gender-based violence, masculinities and homophobia.

Unesco’s wants to build the capacity of the target group through 3 workshops hosted in Antigua, St. Maarten and Jamaica. Following the workshops, participants will be expected to produce 30 high quality TV documentaries that can be used for programmed exchange with other broadcasters through Worldwide Network, which operates from Unesco’s headquarters in Paris.
