*Crop Over Read-In 2015*
Crop Over produced by the National Cultural Foundation, is Barbados’ major festival held annually during the summer – HERE is this year’s calendar. Yes, we love our soca music and it culminates with masqueraders partying in the streest on our Grand Kadooment. However, what makes it different from any other carnival, is that it is TRULY a celebration of culture involving all of the disciplines: music, dance, culinary, theatre, photography, visual arts and craft and literary arts.
#barewords will take you to the root of literature – THE WORD. With rhymes, stories, lyrics, chants and jokes, you will be captivated through the spoken and written word in the beautiful setting of Harrison’s Cave, St. Thomas in Barbados on Sunday, July 5th 2015. Featuring some of our top #spokenword artists.
Ticket info available at the NCF’s website. More info? Contact the Literary Arts Officer, Ayesha Gibson-Gill.
