‘Grenada Rocks’ introduces the warm and friendly people of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique as the storytellers of the wonders and boundless beauty of this destination. After all, who better to tell this story right? This campaign introduces a cast of Grenadians on island and in the Diaspora, who speak of how Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique ‘rock’ as a multifaceted nation with diverse experiences. Look forward to seeing our fashion designers, artists, artisans, chefs, tour guides and Grenadians from every walk of life telling their exciting stories. ‘Grenada Rocks’ has come to fruition because of the contributions, hard work and love of the Grenadian people, and the GTA looks forward to it being a global success. The GTA will release its series of videos in the coming weeks and encourages everyone to share the campaign videos, as well as their personal ‘Grenada stories’ using the hashtag #GrenadaRocks.
