NGJ Announces the Return of the Writivity Workshop

The National Gallery of Jamaica’s Education Department announces the return of its signature educational workshop, WRITIVITY. The workshop will run from Monday, August 15 to Thursday, August 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. daily.

Developed in 2015 the WRITIVITY workshop is geared toward Grade 10 – 11 students who are preparing to sit the Visual Arts examinations for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC). The main goal of WRITIVITY is to assist students with the development of their visual arts reflective journal, which is a key component of CSEC’s School Based Assessment (SBA) submission. By participating in this programme, students will be taught how to properly prepare entries for their journal, analyse art pieces and conduct art-related research within sessions that utilize primarily the NGJ’s art collection and document resources (especially online resources). This year’s workshop will be held in association with the NGJ’s exhibition, Kingston Biennial “Pressure”, which opened on June 26, 2022, and will be used to introduce the participants to a selection of contemporary art produced by some of Jamaica’s most exciting visual artists. 

Registration for the WRITIVITY workshop is free and as a result, there is limited space for participants. Interested persons should contact the National Gallery’s Education Department by Friday, August 12, via the following telephone numbers: 876 922 – 1561/3 (Lime landline), or 876 618 – 0654/ 5 (Digicel fixed line) or via email at

All activities for WRITIVITY will be held at the National Gallery of Jamaica. Refreshments will be provided for the participants from 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
