Young people in Barbados will be celebrated tomorrow, Saturday, September 3, during a Youth Talk Through Arts showcase at The Plantation Theatre, St. Lawrence Main Road, Christ Church, beginning at 8:00 p.m.
The event will provide a voice for expression on issues which affect the youth and facilitate open dialogue between them and the audience at the conclusion of the showcase. The artistes will use dance, music, the spoken word, film, fashion and drama to address the sub-themes – Issues Affecting Youth and A Celebration of Youth.
Trident Productions will host the inaugural activity, which has the Minister of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth, Stephen Lashley, as its patron. The event commemorates the International Year of the Youth, which ended in August 2011.
