Artwalk 2024: Come fall in love

by Jan 25, 2024Play

Executive Director of Kingston Creative, Andrea Dempster Chung is determined to play Cupid. Her goal is to get people “to discover downtown and fall in love with their city all over again”.

“Throughout the year we will take guests on free walking and bus tours to 12 of the best hidden cultural treasures in downtown, and we hope that everyone will come out on the last Sunday of each month to take this journey with us,” she said.

She and her team will once again work with Red Stripe Flavours which is back on board for a second year as the main sponsor of the growing Kingston Creative Artwalk Festival.

The Artwalk kicks off on Sunday, January 28 under the theme of ‘Dance Challenge’, stepping boldly into the new year with the hottest new dance moves by popular Jamaican dancer and influencer Dancing Rebel, well known for her TikTok dance challenges.

The fun begins at 11:00 am with a free walking tour to Simon Bolivar Cultural Centre in Parade, where guests will tour the exhibits and enjoy a free Latin dance class. During the day there will be performances from DanceWORKS (Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts), Denham Town Dance Academy, and guests can also enjoy music all day by Merritone Disco, DJ Fenix, and the 9 Mile Soundsystem. 

In addition to the dynamic line-up other activities include shopping for arts and crafts at the Artisan Market, domino competitions, paint and sip events, and guided tours throughout the day which can be booked on the new Kulcha Connect app. These tours will pass the murals on Water Lane up to National Gallery of Jamaica on Orange Street, where guests can enjoy a private tour of the Faces of Us exhibition.

The highlight of Artwalk Sunday is the live dance challenge on Church Street, an opportunity for individual dancers and dance crews to win $30,000 in a dancehall challenge hosted by dancing sensation Rebel, which will be followed by a performance from the star herself.
