Month: December 2011 (page 1 of 2)

January Brunch@ Loading Dock

Happy New Year to all community members.

This is an open invitation to all CaribVic members and members of the community to join us for our monthly brunch.

It would provide us with the opportunity to meet up in an informal environment, and have a general chat.

It also will provide newer members to the Victorian community to meet people and make friends.

The lunches are reasonably priced so as not to break the bank.

The lunches will be held on the last Sunday of every month at varying locations

This month’s lunch will be held at:

Loading Dock

66a River Espanade,

Docklands

Come along any time between 11.00 – 14.00 hours

Please drop us a note on: CaribVic@live.com to indicate your interest for this month.

We look forward to see you on the 30.01.11

Pans on Fire CD Launch December 27

Dear CaribVic Community,

Pans on Fire is thrilled to invite you to the launch of our debut CD called “RECOVERY”, at the Marysville Rebuilding Advisory Centre / Information Centre on Tuesday, December 27, from 2-4 pm.

This album symbolises our journey to recovery from the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009. Playing music in our community steelbands has been a real healing process and we are grateful for your kind support and welcoming friendship we experienced at your recent CaribVic Family Day in November.

With Pans on Fire we are looking forward to many future shared events with the CaribVic community and wish you and your families a Merry Christmas, a restful festive season and a prosperous and Happy New Year!

kind regards,
Rita

Victorian community members speak at the AACS

The Caribbean Association of Victoria is delighted to announce that two committee members and one general community member will represent our interests at the Australian Association for Caribbean Studies Biennial Conference this week.

Karina Smith of Victoria University, CaribVic’s Patricia Thomas and Caryn Rae Adams of La Trobe University are proud to participate in the Conference which will be held from the 16th-18th February, 2011 in Newcastle, NSW.

CaribVic committee member Patricia will address the conference on the topic of ‘Taking our place – in the Community of Victoria’. A topic that will be of great interest to us all, and which she will present to the community at a later date.

CaribVic committee member Karina Smith will speak on ‘Violence Prevention in Downtown Kingston: Sistren’s socio-drama work in Hannah Town and Rockfort communities’

Caryn Rae Adams will speak on ‘Silence, Shameful Secrets and Sexual Violence: Trauma and Exile in Shani Mootoo’s Cereus Blooms at Night’:  Gender, Embodiment and Agency’

We look forward to a report on the conference at a later date. Afghanistan dns information .

February Brunch@ Flagstaff Gardens – Picnic

We recently conducted two surveys about activities you would like to see this year. A reoccurring suggestion was to have an outdoor picnic brunch.

So with this in mind:

This is an open invitation to all CaribVic members and members of the community to join us for our monthly brunch.

It would provide us with the opportunity to meet up in an informal environment, and have a general chat.

It also will provide newer members to the Victorian community to meet people and make friends.

The lunches are reasonably priced so as not to break the bank.

The lunches will be held on the last Sunday of every month at varying locations

This month’s brunch will be held at:

Flagstaff Gardens

Corner of William Street and Franklin Street

Melbourne

Come along any time between 11.00 – 14.00 hours

Please be aware that this is a picnic so eel free to bring food with you. There is a park barbecue available for cooking.
