Welcome to 'The Future of Creativity', a project that aimed to enhance collaboration between the UK and the Caribbean, with a specific emphasis on Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. Our goal was to collectively envision and shape the future of arts and education. Acknowledging the 75th anniversary of Windrush and the historical ties in cultural and education engagement, 'The Future of Creativity' was dedicated to fostering mutual understanding and strengthening connections.
As part of this initiative, November 2023 witnessed the exciting 'Future of Creativity Symposium', a face-to-face event conducted in collaboration with the National Education Trust, Ministry of Education and Youth, Ministry of Culture Gender Entertainment & Sports, and the Planning Institute of Jamaica, all aimed at fostering UK-Jamaica collaboration. The event brought together visionaries from various fields in Jamaica and diverse voices from the UK to contribute to shaping the future of arts and education. We also took the opportunity to highlight the exceptional and longstanding cultural relationship between the UK and Jamaica, leaving an enduring mark on the history and culture of both nations.
We express our gratitude to all those who attended the summit and contributed to its success. Your presence and engagement were crucial in making 'The Future of Creativity' Symposium a meaningful and impactful event. Thank you for being a part of this journey.
