NEWS & NOTES: Richard Bevan appointed new CPL chairman + School-based culture card programme launched

ART APPRECIATION: Under a new pilot programme conceived by the youth and culture ministry (launched on Wednesday at the National Gallery), over 100 students from several corporate-area secondary institutions will receive special "culture cards" giving them access to museums, galleries, heritage sites, exhibitions and productions by private arts and culture companies, as well as activities at the Edna Manley College. According to Minister Lisa Hanna, the initiative is aimed at heightening the cultural awareness of "students who have shown no particular inclination towards culture, as well as students who are excelling in academics for whom culture cards are offered as incentives." 

ON THE MOVE: A highly respected figure in global sports administration, Richard Bevan has assumed the chairmanship of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Bevan comes to the post having previously served bodies like the English Professional Cricketers' Association and the Federation of International Cricketers' Association (FICA) as founding director. "Richard has huge experience in the business of sport and a track record in leading organizations through significant growth and expansion," notes the CPL's chief executive officer, Damien O'Donohoe. "The CPL is very honoured to have him lead the team."
