Bocas Lit Fest

Animated Stories

We launched our new animated storytelling series in October 2020 with the spookiest tale ever told by the children on the NGC Children’s Bocas Lit Fest Storytelling Caravan – A Lagahoo in The Lagoon! 

In the second video, released for Carnival 2021, Anya discovers blue devils, a bookman, fancy sailors and more but gets lost among the crowd of revellers during her first visit to the Jouvert festivities in T&T.  “Lost in Jouvert” is a story written by the children of Port of Spain during the NGC Children’s Bocas Lit Fest Storytelling Caravan.

Look out for more animations coming soon!
