NGC BOCAS YOUTH FEST is a celebration of literary arts and youth in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean region.

In 2021 NGC and the Bocas Lit Fest (BLF) made history by producing Trinidad and Tobago’s first literary festival for youth.The festival was founded with the aim to make literature relevant, appealing and accessible to young people ages 13-25. The inaugural festival took place via livestream on August 19th 2021 and featured 19 participants across 8 events.  To date, the festival has garnered 11,700 organic views on Bocas’ Facebook page, which is the highest total view count for any Bocas livestream festival. 

The 2022 NGC Bocas Youth Fest will be even more impactful as we look forward to hosting the first ever one day celebration in person with young creatives in Trinidad and Tobago!
