The Deputy Speaker and Territorial Member, Hon. Neville Smith has suggested to the Department of Culture to add QR codes at murals.
According to Hon. Smith, that it was time that the department to incorporate technology to help share the cultural stories of the Territory.
“If a QR Code is created with a story in it, it will tell the story as well. We do not know if there is funding available in the budget for that right now, but if you request funding for that in particular it would take culture to another level in the Virgin Islands
,” Hon. Smith stated.
The Deputy Speaker stated that the murals on the wall at Fahie
Hill each of the paintings has a story behind it so.
“I think in this technological time you can create a lot of this with this programme so that when the tourist visits or even when the children come, they could actually swipe and get a full history of what is going on,” Hon Smith said.
His comments were made during Standing Finance Committee (SFC) of the House of Assembly. He shared with legislators that he went to pay a bill which he paid via the internet from his phone.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Hon. Natalio Wheatley welcomed intervention on the excellent suggestion about the QR Code.
