Being an artist in Trinidad and Tobago
Today we're talking to Kaleel Kanor-Doublier, an artist, architect, and content creator from Trinidad and Tobago. Kaleel has served as a visual arts teacher in primary and secondary schools. His ambition is to bring the Caribbean art scene to viewers and build a stronger community of artists and craftspersons. At the time of this recording on Friday 25 November 2022, Kaleel's YouTube channel has 128 subscribers and close to 2,500 views, so apart from learning about his work as an artist I'm excited to hear about his YouTube strategy to hit his first major milestone which is 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours. In the show notes, I've included the links to his YouTube channel and Instagram page so if you're into art and want to support his work feel free to head on over and click the subscribe button.

Self-publishing in Trinidad: The Ghost of Caura
Self-publishing in Trinidad: The Ghost of Caura
We're talking to Lance Baptiste, a writer and content creator from Trinidad and Tobago about his book, The Ghost of Caura. The Ghost of Caura is historical fiction and tells the story of how, in 1945, the colonial government in Trinidad and Tobago dynamited a church in Caura and displaced an entire village to build a dam. 75 years later, a son discovers the journals of his father who lived in the village. In 2021, the son, sitting at a window, writes: Sitting at a window that looks out on the church in Lopinot, I'm beginning to understand how much I did not appreciate my father. Most people begin to truly appreciate their parents when it's too late. I imagine this is the reason I've spent months deciphering his handwriting and trying to reproduce his story as faithfully as possible. Trinidad and Tobago, I feel, deserves the truth, about men like Eusebio, Mr Roberts, my own father and grandfather-Raymond and Popo-and the British's role in destroying a prosperous village.
