Jamaica’s Carnival is said to be among the fastest growing Festivals in the world. We feel so blessed to be collaborating with amazing artists to create WHAT’S NEXT for JAMAICA CARNIVAL 2019!!! We are mining the energy of JONKNAOO to revitalize our creativity. As artists we are warriors against indifference, sloth and “business as usual”… the kinds of mental slavery that keeps us trapped in sameness.
In collaboration with other players BLOOM is facilitating a grassroots JONKNAOO MOVEMENT that amplifies our voices and creates spaces that presences our cultural identity, and provides a philosophical framework that connects all voices advocating for a just and humane country and world.
Here are images from our April 5th, 2018 JONKANOO – Cooler Fete Edition held in Hope Gardens which honored the JONKNAOO Warrior Spirit of Dexter 3D Pottinger.
