The National Cultural Policy is scheduled to be reviewed next year.
However, before this move is carried out there is a proposal for those responsible for conducting the process to keep in mind the ever changing nature culture and how it can be used as part of economic diversification.
Independent Senator, Dr Sharda Patasar, said consultation with persons involved in the sector should be placed high on the agenda as feedback and input from this group can form a key part of the revised policy.
Dr Patasar also commented on the areas deemed safe spaces which can be used as part of economic development and bring about innovation and creativity.
She recalled a project done in 2015 which used Laventille as one of the communities under study in which people were interviewed to get a first view of life as it relates to involvement and inclusion.
She said these suggestions can be hindered due to crime adding there is also a connection between emotional and mental health and well-being which the government is trying to accomplish.
