“The Praxis of West Indian Orality: Performance as a Research Method”
[Reservation Required, email firstname.lastname@example.org]
This workshop explores the use value of Tobago/West Indian yard aesthetics in shaping artistic practice and the role of artistic practice in shaping scholarly research. Participants will be introduced to un/popular cultural trends in the Caribbean and their role in shaping social consciousness; the dynamics of yard-space (traffic of individuals, yard artefacts, trees, plants, shrubs, stalks, stones, thrown out “mundane” house-hold items that become active storytellers); the practice of sacred music-making in Tobago, and it’s role in the development of the organic intellectual; and artistic practice as a research methodology.
