About the Venue: “The Queen’s Park Gallery first played a significant role in the development of Visual Arts in Barbados, since it was traditionally a venue for the Visual Arts displays during the Annual Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition. This continued when it was one of the exhibition venues for CARIFESTA Visual Arts in 1981 and later became a full time gallery. Queen’s Park is unique in that it provides the services of a curator, gallery attendants, a guard, the organization and publicity of the exhibition with the Gallery taking a commission on sales. This facility has allowed many artists, who would not otherwise have been able to mount exhibitions and sell their work, to do so. The Gallery plays a major role in the development of the Visual Arts in several ways. One of these ways is in having a Curator, who consistently meets with artists to view and discuss their work, offering technical and aesthetic advice. This contributes in a strong measure to the sustainability of a local Art Market ...” — Read more: Queen's Park Gallery

Event Description: “Using the work of 'Medium' artists Jackson Burnside, Nettie Symonette, Jace Mckinney and Erica James as inspiration, participants will be led through the creation of collages that utilize traditional and non-traditional materials to express what inspires them and moves their spirit. Beginning with a brief tour of the exhibition, followed by a discussion and demonstration, participants will leave the NAGB with a completed collage that has their very own personal touch! Collage, from the French verb coller, meaning 'to glue,' is the artistic process of gluing and assembling various materials to a flat surface. Collage can refer to both the actual procedure of cutting and pasting as well as to the final artistic product. Using a mixture of paper, paint, sand and any other materials that may be of interest, workshop participants will experiment with assembling various media on a flat surface to create a realistic, not so realistic or completely abstract art work. This a great activity to share with families or friends. Come to the NAGB and explore with us! ...” — Read more: NAGB's Medium Collage Workshop-Facebook and The NAGB-Facebook

The month-long event series and Artwalk named this year by artist Ramona Candy, speaks to the notion that sometimes the best way forward is by stopping to reflect in order to be informed, empowered and inspired by individuals, stories and lessons of the past. FREE events take place every Friday evening and include everything from visual art, to poetry readings, to storytelling and more. Featuring the work of 10 Brooklyn-based visual artists, Black Artstory takes place at 6 businesses along Myrtle Avenue and at a variety of venues including Ingersoll Community Center, Leisure Life NYC, Five Spot Soul Food, and Brooklyn Navy Yard’s BLDG 92. SANKOFA recognizes the arts’ ability to act as a medium and conduit to expose, question and inspire when other forms of communication or action fall short. Themes include: dialogue, genealogy, inheritance, ancestors, tradition, lineage, liberation, and power.

Event Description: “The African Heritage Foundation shares in the African History Month celebrations of the University of the West Indies, by hosting the screening of the documentary, 'Mugabe: Villain or Hero' in the UWI Cave Hill Arts Lecture Theatre. This new film exposes the truth behind President Robert Mugabe’s troubles with the West. Born to Ghanaian parents in Britain, Roy Agyemang, director of a new film on Robert Gabriel Mugabe, entitled ‘Mugabe: Villain or Hero?’ intended to make this film in three months but instead took three years (from 2007-2010). Its debut was at the British Film Institute (BFI) in London on 15 December 2012. The end product is much welcome as it counters the demonization of Mugabe who has fallen from grace in Western eyes. Agyemang shows how Mugabe was lauded and feted by Western leaders until 2000. Accolades and numerous honorary degrees were bestowed on Uncle Bob. Even a knighthood from the British Queen was awarded in 1994. Yet in 2000 European leaders and America turned against Mugabe when he sought to resolve the land issue by introducing a land democratisation programme. In their imperial role as a former British colony, the British were most vitriolic in their attacks and dictates and sided with the 4,000 white Zimbabweans who had control of 80 percent of the best land. Robert Mugabe and the story of the liberation and fall of Zimbabwe is current affairs and important to the development or further underdevelopment of Africa and possibly African descended people in the diaspora. It is important that young people are brought into the discussion of African liberation and its relevance to them here in Barbados. Refreshments on sale.
