The 2ND annual Kia in the Bagadere attracted a number of participants to the shores of Carriacou over the weekend. The event showcased art, literature, film and boats, the creations of the people on the sister Isles.
Patricia John, member of the Carriacou Indigenous Arts showcase, KIA in the Bagadere said this year’s successful execution is owed to the support given to the inaugural exhibition in 2018.
John said the event has created some excitement. Last years exhibition she believes, contributed to the additional number of persons taking part in this years showcase. People who participated in last years showcase was able to rip positive benefits, establishing networks both locally and abroad. John added that while KIA in the Bagadere is relatively new, it opens avenues for individuals in fine arts. It is her hope, that more creative individuals will come forward to showcase what both the sister isle and mainland Grenada have to offer.
Though in its developmental stages, John foresees this as an activity that has potential for growth. She is hopeful that others will be encouraged and see the possibilities in getting finance.
The event which featured poets, lyricists, writers and artists, was held at the scenic Harvey Vale Marina.
