Holiday Message from Hilary Beckles

Season’s Greetings to you and your family on behalf of The University of the West Indies. This time of year is an opportunity for reflection and contemplation.

Holiday Message from Robert Bermudez

My warmest wishes are extended to you and your family for the Christmas and Holiday Season and into the New Year! I think of this time of year as not just Christians celebrating the birth of Christ, but persons from all religions and otherwise celebrating the re-birth of hope and the re-kindling of generosity of spirit, and reaffirming an appreciation for the need to care for ourselves, for those around us and the environment that sustains us.

Enjoy the season and take good care. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best for 2020!

Time Travelling

by Janell Anderson
While working as a JAMVAT student in the UWI Museum and Archives, every day was a new adventure, a journey through time. Through the various collections that I worked with, I found myself being transported back to the foundation of the University College of the West Indies during its early years. I was quite fascinated by the Owen Minott collection, Leonie Forbes, Mervyn Morris and Phillip Sherlock Centre for Creative Arts (P.S.C.F.C.A) collections because of their impact on the history of the UWI and Jamaica’s cultural heritage.
