JAMAICA’S NEW LIVE SHOW ON HOPE ROAD
Held at Bookophilia at 92 Hope Road in St Andrew, ART’ical EXPOSURE seeks to expose creativity through staging a series of literary and musical showcases. It is put on by Manifesto|Jamaica, a new non-governmental organization. Manifesto|Jamaica is run by an energetic team of young Jamaicans who believe in the power of Arts and Culture as a driving force for responsible national development. Manifesto is hosting a three-part series of the events dubbed ART’ical Exposure. The series will run from August to September.
Each night will feature an open mic segment where artists can showcase their talent and an art exhibition and sale inside the store. The show should also see some nice crowds, as there is no entry-fee. The first show was held on August 13, 2010 and featured acts such as Dax, Ganja, Kenardo Philips, Jason Worton and Yashika Graham. Mostly underground acts were exposed in the first show. The next show will be held on August 27 2010 with the theme “Roots Rock” and it will feature Jah9, Protoje and Napatali. The show is expected to grow in size tremendously as word spreads of a new live entertainment spot in town.
