London Is The Place For Me 2016
A Caribbean One Day Festival of Literature and Liming
By the end of the year, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago will have passed the 50 years mark of political independence since the European flags came down in the Caribbean and attentions turned to settlement, new beginnings and self-determination. Writers, broadcasters and thinkers from the Caribbean and England probe the wide-ranging narratives of independence and discuss and present perspectives as they have altered over decades. Featuring Gary Younge, Colin Grant, Hannah Lowe, Dr Raj Persaud, Maggie Harris, Myra Barrs, Anita Sethi, Philip Nanton, Marc Matthews, Susanna Howard, Alexander D Great, Melanie Abrahams, Raymond Antrobus, Philip Cowell, Michael Brome and (DJ) Psykhomantus.
Produced by Renaissance One in partnership with the British Library and Tilt. The festival is part of The Independence Project funded by Arts Council England
A limited number of Day Tickets to attend the four festival events will be available at £20. Individual events are priced £5 - £10.
