Event details

To coincide with Cedar Lewisohn’s solo exhibition, Patois Banton, join us for a free online in-conservation event between Lewisohn and performance poet, writer and education Ioney Smallhorne, and artist, graphic designer and singer Honey Williams.

As a starting point the panel will discuss the subject of Jamaican Patois, the English-based creole language spoken primarily in Jamaica and among the Jamaican diaspora – exemplified by the poetry anthology Office Poems, published on the occasion of the exhibition and written in English by Lewisohn and translated into Patois by Joan Hutchinson.

Together, the speakers will talk about their own experience of patois and how it is linked more widely to subjects including identity, history, class, race and gender.

This event is free and will take place via YouTube. Book your place.
