‘...It’s a good initiative for the community and it’s really nice to hear some folk music.’ says Elza, an attendee of the Stories from the Sea Traditional Jam Session. A gathering of more than 150 people, locals and visitors alike, had congregated at Anse Poules Bleues at the turf of the Baie Lazare Fishermen’s Association in late January 2019.
The Meraki Foundation in partnership with the British High Commission Victoria successfully concluded its Stories from the Sea project last week, Wednesday 23rd January, with a photography exhibition and musical performance by English Folk music duo Belshazzar’s Feast at the British High Commissioner's residence.
On Saturday 2nd June 2018 the owner of the Callio'z Food Truck Collin Rath surprised the Word Up Team with a Speaker, Mic & Mic Stand as a gift to help the project expand and continue offering the platform. A huge thank you to Callino'z for supporting the movement!
