Women in Trelawny will be treated to three days of workshops and motivational talks courtesy of the inaugural Trelawny Women’s Fest. This will be held from September 11-13 and will feature local as well as international facilitators whose intention is to motivate and uplift the attendees. An exemplary Trelawny Woman will also receive the Trelawny Woman Award.

It will begin on Friday night with the local premiere of the movie St. Kofa which was shot in Trelawny. The movie which depicts scenes from slavery and featured Jamaican dub poet Mutaburaka will be shown at the Albert George Market in Water Square.

The workshops will be conducted at the Time and Place beach in Coopers Pen. A cultural concert will bring climax to the slated activities.

This event was the brain child of Maria Moore who had the concept over 18 years ago when she first visited Jamaica as a production assistant in the filming of St. Kofa. During that period she forged a relationship with Laesch and loan thought to the idea.
