Saint Lucia launches its Nobel Laureate Festival, commemorating the island’s two Nobel Laureates for winning the world’s most prestigious award for literature and economics.
Visitors can enjoy over 30 public events on the island throughout January, including guest lectures, performances by students, and poetry. Online access is also available for viewers to tune in from home.
The Nobel Laureate Festival celebrates the achievements and successes of Sir William Arthur Lewis, who won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1979, and Sir Derek Walcott, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1992.
Three Caribbean nationals have received the title of Nobel Prize Winner, earning Saint Lucia the number one spot on the list of independent nations with the highest number of Nobel Prize winners per capita.
To experience the island’s diverse culture, the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) has launched a special giveaway for one lucky winner to win a five-night stay for two at Stonefield Villa Resort, including flights to Saint Lucia.

“A visit to Saint Lucia means meeting our people and immersing in our culture,” remarked Lorine Charles-St. Jules, CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority.
“There are so many ways to do this, and we would love to see more visitors experience the Nobel Laureate Festival each year. It’s an opportunity to see more of the island, get out into the communities and revel in our heritage. It could be art, poetry, history tours, or even rum. There’s so much to enjoy. Our prestigious Nobel Laureates have contributed to Saint Lucian history and culture for generations, and we are proud to continue celebrating their global recognition with our visitors and residents.”
