VPAJ/KOTE First Words: Postponed until the new year...


VPAJ & KOTE took the decision last week to postpone our planned inaugural First Words until mid-January 2013.  We still believe that this is a worthwhile event to pursue, and so will try again - with a longer lead period...and at a time when there are less other things going on - come the New Year.

VPAJ & KOTE Launching First Words: Wednesday 21st Nov12, Redbones => Save the date

With both VPAJ and Kingston on the Edge (KOTE) embracing a multiplicity of creative and tech disciplines, we are together creating a space for those in our community to showcase their work and at the same time receive input from as diverse an audience as possible.  

Called First Words, our concept is as follows:

- Interested persons will have the chance to perform/show/read/illustrate their work (10-15 minutes) in front of a live audience.

Venue: "Wilmar", Old Stony Hill Road, Kingston 8.


Welcome to 'Wilmar', the house of Artist Olivia McGilchrist late grand-father's house, lingering with traces of a Jamaican heritage which she’s struggling to make her own. Three distinct moments from the 1980's to 2011 will be portrayed as video installations throughout the house.

This work follows on from an ongoing body of work entitled 'my dear daddy', which was previously exhibited at the Edna Manley College's CAG[e] Gallery last April.
