Lots of activity in Quality Caribbean Entrepreneurship

I have been having a great time ‘hooking up’ with Caribbean counterparts that are advancing enterprise and Quality of Life in their own ways, through their individual organisations. We are all creating new models and methods together and appreciate the support of our networks as we grow into our own.
Cry For Life CD Launch
Last Thursday saw the launch of the CD ‘Cry for Life’ led by creative, Wayne ‘Onkphra’ Wells and his band Lion Soul and it was great! Contributions from Gabby, Aja and Dancin’ Africa made it an all-round very enjoyable, talent and energy-filled occasion. Befriend Onkphra on Facebook [@Onkphra Wells] for more details on acquiring a CD of your own. It is a Quality Effort commemorating Africa, Haiti and Caribbean life, which deserves applauding.

Bridgetown Film Festival
This past weekend was the innovative Bridgetown Film Festival put on by the Film Group which was founded by entrepreneurs and creatives, Mahmood Patel and Nala. Presenting to an open air setting under the stars and to the backdrop of a crashing Atlantic ocean, the setting in itself was lovely and the film selection diverse. I was especially moved by the Surinamese-set, Dutch language movie ‘Secret of the Saramaca River’ because of its beautiful sceneries and familiar ‘human’ scenarios being played out. The diversity was refreshing. The Film Group intends to continue with their presentations this year and invites you to keep in touch via the Facebook page [@ Bridgetown Film Festival].
Coming up very soon…
