Caribbean Cultural Theatre is a theatrical immersion experience presenting the work of Caribbean based and/or influenced writers, performers and other creative practitioners that entertains, enlightens and honours a balanced rendering of Caribbean culture and the Caribbean-American experience.
Poets & Passions is designed for lovers of the magic of the written word. The program is a mix of literary salon with critically acclaimed, award-winning featured writers, emerging literary talents, open mic performances, electrifying spoken word artists and stimulating discussion that positions the writer’s work as part of a larger conversation on identity, aspiration, heritage and the immigrant experience.
