Jamaica Hidden Histories Evening Showcase

Jamaica Hidden Histories Evening Showcase

This decade has seen a great increase in the use of ‘Jamaican style’ patois, music and cultural images used in marketing and advertising. In view of this, Full Spectrum Productions has been working with enthusiastic young volunteers (18-25) to take part in creating their own unique Jamaican brand.

Young people from diverse communities will be given a platform to showcase what they have learnt at the Jamaican Business Language and Marketing workshops, held at Rich Mix from 7th-16th April. After presentations and training are given by key business leaders and workshop leaders, volunteers will take part in producing short promo videos, posters and leaflet designs and explore how Jamaican patois and music can be used to promote & market Jamaican business.
The Evening Showcase promises to be an exciting, free live event that will feature large-screen promotional videos and spoken word performances centred on Jamaican dialect and compelling imagery created by Jamaica Hidden Histories volunteers. There will be a special guest performance from Freddie Notes, who will take us through a fantastic Jamaican musical journey spanning 70 years.
Jamaica Hidden Histories is an educational project by Full Spectrum Productions and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It aims to unearth and communicate information to understand the history of Jamaica, its distinctive cultural identity and links with Britain. The project will explore how Jamaican culture has become a recognisable and global brand.
