To support "Virgin Islands Voices: A Spoken Word Celebration," a series of activities in collaboration with several partners to conduct writing and poetry workshops, to produce a humanities festival focused on the spoken word, and to organize a book festival to highlight both the oral and written traditions of the Virgin Islands.

The Virgin Islands spoken word tradition manifests itself and is preserved through various literary forms such as cariso, calypso, and poetry. These genres, liberated through performance, will resonate with the hearts and minds of adults, college-aged and K-12 students. The Virgin Islands Humanities Council requests $51,280 to present “Virgin Islands Voices: A Spoken Word Celebration,” through spoken word workshops, a poetry contest, a book festival, and a lecture.
