Culture Minister Olivia Grange has announced an expanded Culture Passport programme.

The programme will now include community-based organisations, churches, senior citizens, Associations, people with disabilities and other special interests groups.

Speaking at the signing of an agreement between the Ministry and the CHASE Fund for the production of 50,000 Culture Passports, Grange said it was a new beginning for the Culture Passport programme.

She says the passport will allow more Jamaicans to access a growing number of sites, cultural institutions such as museums and galleries, as well as cultural events.

The Minister said more locations, monuments and places of interest will constantly be added to the list of venues as the overall aim is to ensure that Culture Passport holders are given a truly diverse and representative experience of Jamaican heritage.
