CULTURE NOTES: Tacius Golding triumphs in JCDC Artlympics + National Gospel Song contest off and running

HIGH PITCH: The eliminations round of the JCDC's National Gospel Song Competition, one of the most fiercely contested on the annual festival calendar, is about to slip into high gear, following last Wednesday's successful kick-off at the St. Mark's Anglican Church Hall in Mandeville, where the enthusiastic hopefuls from Central Jamaica got to impress the panel of judges. Next up are the Northern Region, at the Port Maria Anglican Church Hall on Thursday, Feb. 13, followed by the Western zone on Feb. 20 at Montego Bay's St. John's Action Centre, ahead of the final stop set for Feb. 27 at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre that should attract the best and brightest that Kingston & St. Andrew and St. Catherine have to offer. 

ART SMART: Tacius Golding High recently topped the JCDC's Artlympics, an Olympic-inspired series of art games and creative challenges, put on during last month's inaugural Students' Art Day Out. The initiative represents a new component of the commission's national visual arts competition and exhibition, and ins aimed at allowing student artists to tap into their creativity and overcome fun challenges posed to them, including a mystery portfolio. The winning school secured, in addition to the championship trophy, a $100,000 cash prize or its art department, courtesy of the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF).
