The Caribbean Artists Movement 1966-1972: The Fiftieth Anniversary

Continuing in a series of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of New Beacon Books, on Sunday 20 November the GPI and New Beacon Books present a public discussion on:The Caribbean Artists Movement which was founded 50 years ago in 1966.

In conversation will be Errol Lloyd (CAM Member, Painter, Sculptor, Arts Administrator, Adult and Children's Writer and Illustrator), Nicole-Rachelle Moore (Freelance Educator and Writer on Caribbean Culture and the Arts), Gordon Rohlehr (CAM Member, Professor at UWI Trinidad, Author of numerous studies on Kamau Brathwaite and Carnival) and Anne Walmsley (CAM Member, Author of the seminal study, 'The Caribbean Artists Movement 1966-1972: A Literary and Cultural History' published by New Beacon Books in 1992).

Members of CAM encouraged each other in exploring  self-affirming creative appreciation, critique and independence through art, drama, literature and other fields. What is the legacy of CAM? What can contemporary creatives learn from the CAM model? Join us for what will certainly be an enjoyable afternoon of lively and stimulating discussion.
