Everything in terms of helping West Indian art is phenomenally easy. Scholarships is the answer to helping young artists, or even older artists.... Let us say you had a million dollars. One million dollars in one country. You take three or four artists, young ones, let them go away and learn the same thing and come back. You can even leave them, abandon them and let them make their own way....

-- Derek Walcott, interviewed by Raymond Ramcharitar in the April Trinidad & Tobago Review.
