THE DIVERSITY of the Crop-Over Festival will again be showcased at the Crop-Over Read-In at the Barbados Museum on July 22 at 8 p.m. Chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), Dr Donna Hunte-Cox, said the thrust was to “intensify the focus on diverse attractions in the festival, which will justify the label More Than A Carnival, Sweet Fuh Days”.Speaking at a Press conference on Monday, Hunte-Cox said the Junior Read-In, and the more established Adult Read-In were among the NCF’s initiatives to advance literary arts education, and educate the various publics in and about the literary arts.The Adult Read-In involves writers at different levels and is staged at different venues to celebrate their works,” the NCF head said.“This is more than a pastime exercise, as it challenges the mind to be creative and to interpret works.    “It moves participants from introductory to intermediate and eventually to advanced stages, as the NCF coordinates workshops for educators to expose them to techniques of communications skills and better writing,” she said.Officers also noted that literary arts had come off the pages and artists were using more creative ways to express themselves and engage their audiences.Featured artists for this year’s Read-In are DJ Simmons, Heru, Azman, Sonia Williams, Sun Rokk, True Headley, Anthony Kellman and Amanda Hoyos-Cummins.
