Duration: 7th – 19th August 2017

Camp Description: The Discovery Camp 2017 theme is “MEMORIES”. The title is taken from a classic calypso by the Might Sparrow in which the Birdie croons into memory the names, the lives, and work of important cultural icons. With the passing of Narcenio ‘Señor’ Gomez and Sir Derek Walcott between 2016 and 2017 (among others), Arts-in- Action felt it timely to find ways of memorialising these important contributions to Caribbean cultural life and civilization, especially for a young generation who run the risk of never hearing these names. They seek to engage our young participants in taking a journey and learning more about our past icons. This would be done through the various arts disciplines which they will be participating in.
