Fundraising Fun at the launch of Dream to Change the World...The Book of the Exhibition

Last evening we celebrated the launch of our latest publication Dream to Change the World...The Book of the Exhibition while also raising funds for the GPI. It was a great event with contributuions by the book's editors Sarah Garrod, Nicole-Rachelle Moore and Sarah White as well as reminiscences from artist Errol Lloyd whose work featured in the actual exhibition in the section on the Caribbean Artists Movement. Readings/performances of poetry were a highlight of gathering with Linton Kwesi Johnson, Selina Nwulu and Muneera Pilgrim (who arrived in from Senegasl only that morning! We're still impressed!) captivating the audience with their contrasting styles but common passion. Thanks to all of you who attended (we hope you enjoyed the seasonal mince pies) and thanks too to our special guests : the three poets and to Roxy Harris the GPI's Chair who did just as his title suggests: chaired the evening. Have a look at some relaxed images from the event below:
