Grenada has gained interest and recognition for other projects worthy of note including hosting the world’s first underwater sculpture gallery. Jason deClaires Taylor created the underwater sculpture which has been publicised in over 1,000 magazines and articles worldwide, including National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, and even Vogue.
English is the country’s official language but many Grenadians speak patois, a dialect which combines English words with elements of French and African languages. The literacy rate for Grenada is 96% of the population. Grenada’s main university is St George’s University, which was founded as an independent school of medicine in 1976, has over 12,000 graduates and is associated with other educational institutions throughout the world, including the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and Ireland. The university’s science-based focus opens up a small market for educational publishers in the country. Grenada has recently launched a new festival, The Spice Word Literary Festival, which will feature the works of Grenadian authors and will exhibit various events including readings, exhibitions and book sales.
