About the Author: “Derek Walcott (1930-2017) is the author of over twenty poetry collections and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Queen’s Medal for Poetry, a Guggenheim Fellowship, MacArthur Foundation grant, and William B. Hart Poet-In-Residence at the American Academy in Rome. Walcott’s work brings contemporary resonance to the mythology of the islands in his play written in 1958, which he revised and reworked throughout his life into musical, stage and film versions ... As a young boy, Walcott would spend the holidays at a family home in the St Lucian countryside where on evenings family and friends would gather to tell folk tales. This left an indelible impression on the young poet/playwright. ‘Ti Jean and His Brothers,’ written for his son, Peter, in 1958, is inspired by a West Indian folktale about three brothers who attempt to outsmart the Devil. The musical explores integral leitmotifs of colonialism, morality, corruption and creative authority. A prolific artist, of Walcott’s approximately 30 plays, the best-known are ‘Dream on Monkey Mountain’ (produced 1967), a West Indian’s quest to claim his identity and his heritage ...”Read more: Ti Jean & His Brothers-Facebook, Walcott Festival-Ti Jean & His Brothers-Facebook and Queen's Hall-Ti Jean & His Brothers

Event Description: “As a part of the NAGB’s 'We Gatchu: Sanctuary After The Storm' initiative, we have teamed up with artist and art therapist Susan Moir Mackay to bring Create Space to those impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Create Space is a safe art space which is open to everyone. It is a space for talking or not talking. A space for emotions or quietness after Dorian. A space for reflecting or becoming absorbed in art making. There will be art supplies which available and they will be used in many ways. Even if you have never used art materials you are welcome and there will be assistants who will be with you during sessions. Working with art materials after a crisis can be an excellent tool for restoring a sense of safety, connection and rebuilding agency and grounding for individuals and communities. This is our intention for Create Space. The final Create Space session will be held at the NAGB on Saturday, September 21st, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
