Imprint leaves its mark

Saturday, October 28, 2017

MORE than 700 of Jamaica's creative minds converged for the second staging of Imprint at the Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston Saturday night.

Imprint is a platform for young artistes, musicians, photographers, poets, illustrators, and other creatives to showcase their art.

“I am truly grateful for the ability to bring people together because I believe that is a talent that will not only make Imprint a force to be reckoned with but the Jamaican art scene as a whole,” Shaundel Campbell, 22, event conceptualiser, told Jamaica Observer.

Imprint also featured body painting, tattoo and piercing bar and a fashion show.

The occasion also featured a tribute to videographer Kemar “Crimson” James, who passed away suddenly in June.

Poets, singers and recording artistes including Protoje provided refreshing entertainment throughout the night.

“The event is the type of energy I love to be around… energy like this boosts creativity and drive,” said one patron.

“Imprint was a great experience to see so much talent being showcased at a single event,” said another.

The evening closed with an after-party at Triple Century in New Kingston.

Event sponsors included Jamaica 145, Leggo Career Jamaica, Bussweh Visuals, Prima Vera, Billodex as well as Kingston's mayor Delroy Williams and the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.
