CREATIVE SPACE SWIMS IN TO THE CHOPPY WATERS OF MARINE CULTURE

My CREATIVE SPACE column tackles art and culture in Antigua and Barbuda and the wider Caribbean. A recent mini-series focused on marine culture.

Read them below and/or watch the video interviews;

CREATIVE SPACE #19 OF 2021: MARINE CULTURE 1 OF 2: FEAR OF SWIMMING, WITH CHRISTAL CLASHING O’REILLY

“we had classes three times a week after school for primary school students…these were public schools” – Christal on a pre-COVID initiative to create more swimmers on island, where ironically (albeit anecdotally), there is considerable fear of swimming

CREATIVE SPACE #20 OF 2021: MARINE CULTURE 2 OF 2: FINITE RESOURCES, OCEAN LAW, AND COMMUNITY ACTION, WITH TRICIA LOVELL

“although everybody knows about it, it isn’t something that has been extensively studied compared to other forms of marine debris” – Tricia, who is currently in Sweden pursuing her PhD on her interest in derelict fishing gear

The work that these women do is so important, and they are both impressive in their own right, and I appreciate both of them making the time for these conversations. Hope you enjoy.
