Museums and National Monuments Board named in Seychelles

Museums and National Monuments Board named in Seychelles ( There is a need for the people of Seychelles to recognize the vitality of the museums and monuments and to understand that they are there for the country.

The Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, said this while meeting the members of two newly-appointed advisory boards - the National Monuments Board and the Museums Board.

Attending the two back-to-back meetings held at the Ministry of Tourism&Culture Offices at ESPACE building was the Principal Secretary for Culture, Benjamine Rose.

The Museums Advisory Board chaired by Marcel Rosalie is made up as follows:

Marcel Rosalie (Chairperson)
Bernard Georges
Patrick Mathiot
Dr Odile Decomarmond
Tony Mathiot
Alain Lucas
Cecile Kalebi

The National Monuments Board on its part has the following members:

Marcel Rosalie (Chairperson)
Julienne Barra
Therese Barbe
Jacques Koui
David Chanty-Young
Rony Jean

During the first meeting of these two new boards with the minister, the members of the two boards commended the approach taken by the ministry, adding that having these new boards shows the importance that Minister St.Ange and his team attach to the various aspects of the country’s culture.

Members of both boards also shared their views and discussed the way forward. Discussions also centered on how to make these vital aspects of the Seychelles’ heritage become self-sustainable, especially the museums.
