T.A.L.E.N.T (Trekvoy Art & Literary Endowment for the Naturally Talented) was formed in July 2011 by Aisha A. King, Juliette Ste. Rose and Kebra Smith to develop the cultural and creative expressions of Barbadians. Since our inception, creating the animated “Zana Series” which features books and animated educational awareness videos has been one of the main focal points.
Unique Business Proposition & Vision/Mission Statement
Vision: “To use art to promote and maintain a safe, clean and culturally rich society that encourages full participation by and respect for all Barbadians; We also aim to play a meaningful role in developing the cultural and creative expressions of Barbadians through education, broadcasting, cinematography and entertainment.”
In moving towards our goal of establishing a culturally rich society we will:
• Cultivate taste in and encourage greater appreciation for Barbadian cultural expressions by promoting the art forms within communities and in institutions of learning.
• Organise cultural events such as concerts, plays, exhibitions, festivals and fairs.
• Host educational events such as public lectures, classes and programmes for the benefit of the community.
• Publish books, booklets, pamphlets and other educational, developmental and informative materials.
• Promote cultural research, provide training and conduct symposia and workshops for Barbadian cultural practitioners.
