  • MOU between SIAD and Constance Ephelia

    2 Feb. 2017 - The Seychelles Institute of Art and Design (SIAD) of the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development and the Constance Ephelia Seychelles signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Friday 27th January 2017 at the Constance Ephelia Resort.

     

    The MOU was signed by the Director of the Seychelles SIAD Mrs Christine Payet and the Resident Manager of Constance Ephelia Seychelles Mrs. Sasha Tyas, and was attended by the staff, students, key stakeholders and other distinguished guests.

     

    The Memorandum which came into effect on Friday 27th January 2017 will make provision for both parties to establish areas of common interest and it commits both establishments to work together for the benefit of the students, artists and the wider education and artistic communities.

     

    It also seeks to establish a framework for cooperation between the Seychelles Institute of Art and Design of the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development and the Constance Ephelia Seychelles for a period of three years.

     

    The signing of the document is subsequent to the production of a Calendar Art Project for Constance Ephelia Seychelles initiated by Mrs. Tyas in 2016 and created by SIAD students, with the supervision of staff members.

     

    Constance Ephelia Seychelles has confirmed that over 750 copies of the calendar have either been distributed or given as gifts to clients of the hotel during those past few weeks. The management of the hotel stated that the calendar was favored over other exotic gift packs offered by the resort during the festive season.

     

    During the ceremony, SIAD also officially launched its website designed by Mr. Benjamin Valmont.​
