Culture and attitudes of Trinidad and Tobago are conceptualized as the rhythm and catalyst for growth and change. In recognition of its responsibility for supporting and guiding the development of the various manifestations of our culture, Trinidad and Tobago executes this mandate through:

-Support for the work of cultural and religious organizations, national cultural organizations and deserving individuals
-The development and implementation of policies in the culture sector
-The management of Trinidad and Tobago’s National Carnival Celebrations
-The preservation and management of our National Heritage
-The conceptualization and management of the National Steel Symphony Orchestra and the soon to be launched National Theatre Company.

The following are the actions undertaken by this country, through the Ministry of the Arts and Multiculturalism, in fulfilling its mandate on culture as articulated in the Declaration of Commitment of Port-of-Spain.

-Government’s Tax Incentive Regime for Philanthropy and Investment in the Arts reflects its commitment in the provision of policy to guide the promotion of culture.
-The Open School for the Arts which was re-named the Community Cultural Training Programme in 2007 was designed to offer quality training to budding artists via a collaborative arrangement with major stakeholder organizations in the arts. Community organizations assist in management of the venues and sourcing of participants, whilst the national bodies design the curricula and provide the tutors for the various disciplines.
