This year we’ll bring to life our first youth festival, sponsored by NGC!
The inaugural NGC Bocas Youth Fest features a spoken word masterclass in July, and then a full afternoon of performance, author interviews, readings and debates by and for youth on Thursday 19 August.
We’ll also launch the youth writer of the year award, the first inter-genre writing award celebrating the young people writing across multiple mediums: social media, blogs, printed press and short stories. Who are some of the young people using writing to make an impact? We are on a journey to find out.
NGC BOCAS YOUTH FEST PROGRAMME
With the exception of the Spoken Word Masterclass, the entire festival will be broadcast in one livestream on 19 August from both our Facebook and Youtube pages, and is free and open to the online public. Tickets or registration information are NOT required. A Facebook or YouTube account is not required in order to view the Festival events on these platforms.
The recordings of Festival’s events will remain available for a limited time post-Festival, for those wishing to revisit or view events at their leisure.
