art of reggae
The Art of Reggae Exhibition is a successful collaboration between Positive Vibration and the International Reggae Poster Contest.
The exhibition, which supports the Alpha Boys School in Kingston, Jamaica, showcases 100 reggae-inspired posters designed by illustrators + artists from all over the world, including Jamaica, Iran, Ghana, Brazil, Russia, the U.S, China, the UK and beyond.
As well as raising funds for the Alpha Boys School, the exhibition raises awareness of the fantastic work the school does. Set up in 1880 by the Sisters of Mercy, the school provides education and musical tuition to underprivileged youths in Kingston, Jamaica. Without it, we may not have reggae music, given the fact that its alumni includes The Skatalites, Rico Rodriguez, Desmond Dekker, Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace and Yellowman, amongst many other great musicians.
Due to the disruption caused by Covid-19, we had to postpone the 2020 Exhibition, which was due to take place at the Kuumba Imani Centre in Liverpool (UK) in June 2020.
The postponed Exhibition will now take place in 2021. Further details will be released in due course.
