Chairman of the Siparia Regional Corporation Dr Glenn Ramadharsingh announced on Sunday that the sum of $500,000 has been approved to build a cultural centre at Siparia.

Ramadharsingh was speaking the corporation's Divali celebrations at Avocat Village.

Ramadharsingh said the facility would be constructed at the Daisy Voisin Hub.

He told the gathering in the hall on the compound of the Sri Siddhi Vinayaka Mandir that a tassa academy would be housed at the facility along with facilities for steelpan and calypso.

He said the facility would also include a platform to showcase the culture of T&T’s First Peoples.

“Its going to be a beautiful structure and its going to be overlooking the entire south west peninsula at the Daisy Voisin Hub. I want us to do something like a tassa academy where we will have trainers. he said.
