Port-Glaud based artist, Channel Alphonse lives with a physical disability which nonetheless prevents him from practicing his craft.

Mr. Alphonse however needed new materials to further improve the quantity and quality of his work. The National Arts Council assisted the artist with a donation of acrylic paint, protective gloss paint, brushes, a jig saw, and a die grinder.

The materials were presented to Mr. Alphonse by the Minister for Tourism and Culture, Mr. Alain St Ange and other high officials from the Ministry of Culture during a short ceremony at his workshop at Port Glaud.

Minister St. Ange spoke about the importance of giving prominence to culture as is the case with tourism. “As we are looking at hotels we are also looking at the culture side of our development where we do that marriage between culture and tourism. We saw Mr. Alphonse and we appreciated what he was doing; a man with a disability but a man who was producing local products for our tourism market and for the Seychellois,” said Minister St. Ange.

The Ministry of Culture is calling for more locally produced products. “We are hoping that more and more Seychellois will do what Mr. Alphonse is doing. Will produce Seychelles products for our Seychelles tourism industry and for the Seychelles economy. We cannot keep selling things that we import from the four corners of the world.”

Mr. Alphonse has been practicing art for the past eight years and currently employed at the Rehabilitation centre at North East Point where he teaches crafts.
