The Department of Creative and Festival Arts (DCFA), The University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine, will be hosting The Old Yard (formerly Viey La Cou) on Sunday 23rd February, 2014, from 12:00 noon. Situated in the Gayelle at DCFA, Agostini Street, St. Augustine - an actual yard - complete with an architectural style reminiscent of long ago, this event promises to offer a dynamic mix of a journey into cultural history and a carnival masquerade showcase within the format of a heritage fair. Featured will be our very own traditional Carnival masquerades. The Old Yard gives patrons a slice of this cultural history while offering a showcase of Carnival masquerade traditions beyond their historical location in an effort to stimulate contemporary imaginations. The young and old are therefore encouraged to come and experience the meeting of masquerade traditions in The Old Yard.
