Alice Yard turns 10 this month. The yard used to be Sean Leonard’s great-grandmother’s home. Her name is Alice Gittens and she purchased the property in 1953, and instituted the open door policy that is a feature of the space today.
Sean is one of the directors of the Alice Yard. The others include Christopher Cozier and Nicholas Laughlin. He says the first 10 years of the project has been fun, and it will be interesting to see how long it can be sustained.
To celebrate Year X they’ve set up a series of installations across Woodbrook, Port-of-Spain and Belmont, including the Out of Place project with UK artist Blue Curry. Visit the Facebook page for details, the installations are in some unique spaces.
