Official Theme Unveiled for Belize’s 2023 September Celebrations

Francis Fonseca, Minister of Culture: “So the National Celebrations Commission which I chair puts out a public call. This year we received around 230 submissions. We have a selection committee, a theme selection committee comprised o about I think six members of the commission. The Commission is a body of about twenty five people so we have a team selection committee they go through them, they vet them, screen them and then they bring to the entire commission.”
