Originality and creativity were the buzzwords at the Barbados Community College (BCC) last Saturday night as Frenetic Arts held its latest Poetry Lime.
Talent was also definitely in abundance, as several artistes performed freestyle during the open mic-styled event at which members of the audience warmly showed their appreciation by engaging in loud finger snaps.
One of the organizers Jovana Johnson told Bajan Vibes the aim of the event was to give young artistes a platform to showcase their talents, as well as a space for critical feedback.
In fact, she described it as an open workshop that allowed the participants to express themselves in a fun way.
“A lot of the people came here being very shy and being afraid to get on the stage, but this environment is one of the best to learn and get the feedback to enable you to grow,” added co-organizer Faith Johnson.
“Our aim is to branch into as many arts as possible. We don’t just want to do poetry, we want to do music, drama, singing,” she said.
Moving forward, they will be looking to stage bigger and better events.
Poetry Lime takes place every last Saturday at the BCC.
