OAS/GNT Sustainable Heritage Endorsement ProgrammePHOTOVOICE PROMPT #1: THAT’S WE CULTURE
What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)
Hardworking woman cutting cocoa. Vegetation in the background. Taking a stand to grow cocoa.
Taking pride/love in the task.
Money-making and loyalty. Woman who grew up doing the task, takes good care of the garden. Reaping harvest of the labour. Determination, growth, struggle. Increase in cocoa production.
Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
Female farmers (especially in cocoa) are unique. Giving females the spotlight in terms of farming contribution. Organic cocoa for Hermitage Chocolate Factory but not what happens before “chocolate”. Women working independently.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
Women are no longer dependent on males.
Gender equality in all aspects of life.
Evolving work culture, “modern” times in Grenada.
Women are now harvesting and working the land.
