THE Vic­to­ria Park Arts Sea­son will fin­ish with a bang dur­ing the first ever Kent Street Kar­ni­val.

Drum­ming workshops, mar­kets and art dis­plays will make for a fun day at John MacMil­lan Park, Vic­to­ria Park Cen­tre for the Arts and the East Vic­to­ria Park Fam­ily and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

Vic­to­ria Park Cen­tre for the Arts gen­eral man­ager and artis­tic di­rec­tor Clare Szmekura said she was hop­ing for as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to come to the event.

“The idea started at an in for­ma­tion day when we had in­ter­est from artists and bands to do lots of lit­tle projects but we didn’t be­lieve we could fa­cil­i­tate all the in­di­vid­ual events,” she said.

“We are work­ing with the East Vic­to­ria Park Fam­ily and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre and the Vic Park Farm­ers Mar­ket to put it to­gether.

“It’s a chance to cel­e­brate,” she said.

“There will be an art jam, po­etry, bands per­form­ing, drum­ming workshops and art­work dis­played that was cre­ated dur­ing the Arts Sea­son.”

Szmekura said there were hopes the event could grow into an an­nual fix­ture.

“The idea is to end the Arts Sea­son on a high, while also giv­ing peo­ple a taste about what hap­pened dur­ing the past month,” she said.

“It’s also an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to visit each of the venues and check out what hap­pens at them.”

Paul Osei Kofi ran the Drum­ming for Dig­nity event dur­ing the Vic­to­ria Park Arts Sea­son.
