Community Conversation On Revolutionary Cultural Practices
On Friday, March 30, 2012, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Hub, the Critical Caribbean Symposium Series will present the final of its Community Conversations: “Revolutionary Cultural Practices and Engagements”.
The series organizers English professor Dr. Craig Smith and French professor Dr. Keithley Woolward have assembled a distinguished panel of cultural practitioners: marketing and branding specialist Royann Dean; National Art Gallery of the Bahamas Chief Curator and COB Assistant Professor John Cox; abstract artist Toby Lunn; writer and poet Sonia Farmer and writer and poet Emile Hunt.
The first conversation on January 27, dealing with the question of “National Development” attracted a lively audience of students, faculty and the public to the Harry C. Moore Library and Information Center at COB. Examining the need for urgent reform in the area of education, “Education for Liberation”, the second conversation in the series was held at Popopstudios on February 24.
For Smith and Woolward, these community conversations were intended to bring this important work to the wider Bahamian community.
