Masquerade although the oldest of Trinidad Carnival’s art forms is the one the least understood in terms and of its business operations and economic potential. I have prepared this technical description of mas’ production input for an aide memoire for the National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago for a program of sector wide measurement of the social and economic impacts of the Carnival Industry and the subsequent design of policy, strategy and implementation measures. The recommendations are meant to provide guidance for further research into the Trinidadian masquerade product and also indications as to future policies and strategies which could support its development.
