The expo is being held under the distinct patronage of hotelier Jane Issa, who is exemplary in promoting Jamaican skills.
Comprising workshops and seminars on arts, creativity, culture, and performances, “Be Swept Away by Jamaica’s Beauties”, the expo slated for two weeks, at Couples Swept Away, Negril will highlight the creative power and culture of Jamaica. On the other hand the entity and several artists(es) will have opportunity to earn needed funds.
OAaSIS exists to empower the creative mind of youth towards building a nation of achievers, and does this through several projects such as a creative workshop series, cxc-geared workshops, a club for youth 0-25. Other projects include building a library.
The artists(es) are selected on the premise that they have been consistent in volunteering with the Foundation, and keeping 85 per cent of the funds is a plus benefit to express appreciation for their work. Non volunteers will keep less.
Couples Swept Away is known as the only such entity that promotes strictly Jamaican talent, and is not new to hosting exhibitions of local artists. On any given visit the art and decor reflects pure Jamaican talent, as the hotel strives to assist local artists and artisans to maintain stability and professionalism.
Over 100 works (original and prints), framed and unframed, craft items, literary works will be offered for sale and or auction, along with special presentations in song and poetry
