Nation Linguist is a collaborative initiative between Frenetic Arts and the Barbados Museum and Historical Society. Highlighting and carrying on the legacy of Kamau Brathwaite. This is an incubator which will give Barbadian poets and spoken word artists the incredible opportunity to take up residency in the BMHS for a three-month period and allow them the space and time to develop through interaction with Barbadian history and heritage. The poet-in-residence will create work for exhibition at the culmination of their residency period, as well as hosting workshops, and receiving mentorship from the island’s recognised griots.

Apply here before March 20th to make sure you grab this once in a lifetime opportunity. There is a nominal application fee of $10. All applicants must be 16 years of age or older.

The chosen applicant will have the opportunity to take up residency in the collections of the BMHS and generate material as the Poet In Residence (PIR) from April 6th, 2020 – June 30th, 2020. A stipend will be provided.

If you are a poet or know a poet get in on this and share the knowledge. This sounds like an amazing initiative.
