Jamaica Hidden Histories: Cultural Re-Awakening Conference Day
Saturday, 26 October 2013 from 09:30 to 17:30 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Jamaica Hidden Histories is an educational project by Full Spectrum Productions, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It will focus on Jamaica’s historical context with Britain when Oliver Cromwell captured the island from the Spaniards in 1655, then document 50 years of Jamaican influence on British culture and economy since Jamaica’s independence in 1962. To discover ‘Hidden Histories’ we are asking participants to bring in artefacts, postcards, letters, photographs, textiles and business archives of Jamaican origin. These items would be considered for the project’s exhibitions in 2015 and for filling in gaps in archives and collections. Diverse communities will explore how Jamaican culture has become a recognisable global brand.
Tickets £10, which includes Lunch and Refreshments.
