On Friday, February 7, 2020, UWI Museum opened the exhibition Enigma of Arrival: The Politics and Poetics of Caribbean Migration to Britain. The exhibition, a product of a EU-LAC Museums Project of which the UWI is a consortium member, explores the experiences of Caribbean migrants to the United Kingdom and is accompanied by a virtual museum through which persons can upload their family’s migration story.

Through the Eyes of the Youth

What do you see when you look at Historic Ruins? Do you see the colors that once brilliantly glowed under the sun or do you just see an old dull structure from a time before your existence? How does an individual’s background shape his or her vision and interpretation of historic sites? It is said that a picture can tell a thousand words but how many more words can a painting tell, if any at all?
