OAS/GNT Sustainable Heritage Endorsement ProgrammePHOTOVOICE PROMPT #1: THAT’S WE CULTURE
What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)
A big question and many stories
Old aircraft (history) and palm trees
Aircraft has been in location for a long time
Plane looks like a story/narrative. Dark sky
OId plane yet majestic looking. War + destruction.
Pearls airport has links to Grenada revolution
National landmark and related to America
Preservation (or lack of) Creative opportunity – museum.
Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
Memory of the revolution, the plane being bombed down, and remaining where it “fell”.
To illustrate American help during Grenada’s “bad times”
Many have photographed this aeroplane, near to the old runway.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
Children play in the aeroplane, fun and games, so the plane is now part of the culture.
“Back in time bouncy castle” – having fun.
It’s always been around as a landmark
It is near many other artefacts – e.g. Carib stones.
The whole area is very historic for Grenada
