OAS/GNT Sustainable Heritage Endorsement ProgrammePHOTOVOICE PROMPT #1: THAT’S WE CULTURE
What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)
Unity, love, production, two people in close contact shelling nutmegs/mace. Perhaps they’re family members
Working hard reaping the nutmeg harvest. Shared work, preparing for sales.
Nutmegs, hardworking man in work clothes.
Unguarded cell phone. Rustic/rural village area.
Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
Pure Grenada – Isle of Spice. Advertising what Grenada has to offer. Usually tourist images are of the final product rather than the process. Nutmeg is a way to earn a living for farmers.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
Nutmeg is called “Black gold”
Post-Ivan numbers of nutmeg farmers are reduced, but prior this was a very popular image
Everyday culture for rural area for whole families
Brings the family together for communication (ole talk) plus work
Three grades of mace for sale – re: commercial values.
