The inaugural function will be held at the hands of Chief Minister Digambar Kamat while Dy speaker of Goa legislative assembly Mauvin Godinho and veteran artist of tiatr, Rico Rod will be the guest of honour.
The inaugural function will be followed by the staging of the tiatr, ‘Gouyo Put’ directed by late Ferrao.

Ferrao was the first Konkani artist to broadcast the first Konkani musical programme on All India Radio and was the only person to be invited to perform in Delhi on the occasion of Republic Day.
“Besides his stage and screen life, he was a gem of a person in his day to day life,” Cardozo says.
