Synergia Talent and Junior Competition Open Call for Submissions

By Rachael Collymore Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 Categories: Call for Submissions, Updates

The Poetic Vibes event series: Synergia: A fusion of Art, Jazz and Poetry began in 2010; an initiative geared towards promoting a variety of talented and amateur performers in the Caribbean. The purpose being to raise the level of awareness to the arts – particularly poetry/spoken word which had seemed to be unappreciated by the masses. We have witnessed the overflowing talent that exists and continue to see the appreciation for the arts grow in our homeland, Trinidad and Tobago. In June 2012, photography was added to the list of acts displayed in our Synergia events. ‘Synergia’ is the greek word for ‘Synergy’ and it is our intent to continue creating these synergies and see the transformation take place. We therefore invite you to be a part of this process by supporting this initiative.
