”FREEDOM ROAD” TOUR OFFERS UNIQUE GLIMPSE INTO TRINIDAD’S EMANCIPATION HERITAGE
Port of Spain, July 20, 2016 –
Stepping into an African Nation Dance.
Sharing dinner on the East Coast.
Giving thanks at a First Peoples smoke ritual in Arima.
These are just a few of the experiences that patrons of “Freedom Road” will experience as they venture into some of Trinidad’s sacred spaces on the eve and morning of Emancipation.
The brain child of prominent local fashion designer Robert Young, the tour (now in its sixth year) is part of his ‘Dotish Tour’ series.
Innovative in their topic and scope each ‘Dotish Tour’ immerses attendees in little known aspects of Trinidadian life. “They are designed to leave one really feeling dotish over how little we know and how little we are taught. You will gain perspective, build community with other people, and witness hidden parts of our history”.
“Freedom Road” will run from 8pm on July 31st until the next morning, after which patrons will have also have the option of joining the Emancipation Procession in Port of Spain. Cost is $270 – 350 TT (sliding scale) and covers transport as well as a late dinner.
