MiniFestos are creative platforms for community building and cooperation. They pop up where community leaders, emerging talent, and Manifesto Jamaica’s network of social workers and creative professionals collide. MiniFestos feature curated introductory-level entrepreneurial and creative workshops, performances and exhibitions.
The MiniFesto workshop menu is designed to reinforce ‘21st century skills,’ and includes topics like: Creative Writing, Contemporary Dance, Parkour, Unlocking Talent and Business Basics for Social Innovators. Imagine a mini-festival featuring works of art and talent from your neighbourhood on showcase for a day.
The MiniFesto events were offered and organized by the Manifesto Jamaica Team & empowered and funded by HELP Jamaica!.
The Tivoli Gardens MiniFesto was staged on Sunday, December 22, 2019 at the Tivoli Gardens Community Centre. Activities and offerings of the day were: A ‘Business Basics for Social Innovators’ workshop along the All-day Art Studio & Storytelling for the children as well as the Roller Skating Workshop, were most of the participants roller-skated for the first time at the MiniFesto. The West African Drumming Worshop for all ages was well attended just as the Talent-Showcase performances in the later part of the day.
