PHILIPSBURG - On Thursday, April 9, 2015, Minister Bourne-Gumbs made an official visit to SIMARC, which is the official archaeological collections depository and research facility for government St. Maarten since 2011.
Students of SIMARC created a short film about the Slave Route Heritage on St. Maarten, which was recently launched to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the UNESCO Slave Route Project.
Minister Bourne-Gumbs wanted to meet the present and past SIMARC students to congratulate them on this great accomplishment.
This project which was the initiative of the Sint Maarten National Commission for UNESCO will now have these films distributed both international to various UNESCO venues, and locally to schools and community groups.
The Public can also view the short film on the Sint Maarten National Commission for UNESCO's Facebook page, located at Facebook.com/UNESCOStMaarten.
