Clement Sankat says the steelpan, as the
biggest manifestation of T&T s creativity,
needs a fund to support its growth and
Speaking at Tuesday s opening cere-
mony for the International Conference
on Pan and Panorama (ICP) at Queen s
Hall, St Ann s, Sankat said: "Some of our
creative minds continue to conduct cut-
ting-edge research and innovation and
use their creativity for product develop-
ment and manufacturing of the steelpan.
Professor Brian Copeland and Professor
Clement Imbert, both from the Faculty
of Engineering, have worked together to create
the Steelpan Development Centre right here in
our university and in our country."
He said the conference theme, Towards the
Globalisation and Development of the Steelpan,

its faculty and students continue to do considerable
work to advance the musical instrument. Sankat

"We have been doing very important work in
this area and we have had great experiences in

priority for UWI to continuously raise the knowl-

"And, it is within this context that we are truly
pleased to be associated with this conference which
encapsulates all that is necessary to make the
steelpan a world-class instrument recognised
internationally. Without your participation, this
conference will not be a success, as your partic-

through more creativity, through knowledge trans-

take hold in terms of how the pan would go for-
