The Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) will stage its second in a series of ‘Link Up and Labrish’ discussion fora on July 27.

The forum, under the theme ‘Feeling Alright at 54: Transforming Lives through Sports’ will be held at the Excelsior Community College Lecture Theatre, 137 Mountain View Avenue, Kingston, commencing at 6:00 p. m.   

Director of Public Relations and Marketing at JCDC, Stephen Davidson, told JIS News that the session will look at opportunities in sports and is targeted at athletes, coaches, doctors, therapists, advertisers, marketers and sponsors.

“For this one we’re not just looking at track and field, though it is the dominant sport.  We have invited the heads of all the sporting associations to be there.  It’s open to everybody, and it will look at how to make sports into a career and how it can transform your life,” he said.

Link Up and Labrish provides an opportunity for Jamaicans to participate in discussions on important aspects of Jamaica’s culture and heritage.

Four fora are scheduled as part of this year’s Emancipation/Independence celebrations.

The first, focusing on the fashion industry, was held in Montego Bay last Wednesday (July 20).

The remaining two will take place on Friday (July 29) at Ocean 11, Fisherman’s Point, Ocho Rios; and on Thursday, August 4 at the Mandeville Hotel, Manchester, and will focus on music and cuisine, respectively.

Wednesday’s seminar is sponsored by Singer Jamaica, Tru-Juice, CrediScotia, Excelsior, LifeSpan Spring Water, Tomorrow’s Event Solution (TEST), Appliance Traders Limited and Jergens.
