WILLEMSTAD- August 23, 2023 – Recently the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) and the Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje together with the board and students of the Heilige Familie College (Holy Family School) launched the stairway located next to the viaduct in Otrobanda, now decorated with many mosaic art pieces. CTB is constantly looking for ways to enhance and expand our tourist product in creative ways, and when possible, with the participation and input of our community.
The students of groups 7 and 8 at the Holy Family School were assigned the task of creating mosaic artwork as part of their culture and art lessons. During the preparation process of this project, CTB together with Minister Cijntje visited the students who took their task very seriously. This mosaic artwork will help to further beautify the Otrobanda area. The stairway will surely become one of the picture-taking spots that both our local people and visitors will enjoy and share on social media.
CTB would like to thank Mrs. Nathalie Jonckheer for coordinating the project, the Holy Family School for their collaboration, and especially the children who worked on the different art pieces. CTB invites our community to personally visit the stairway to take note of the artwork and do not forget to take pictures.
