When the 35 creative minds of the Producing Culture class at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus came together to appreciate the creative arts, it was the ultimate luminart fest.

The night of innovation, dubbed ‘Tribal’ took over Mona’s Hockey Field in St Andrew last Saturday night, with millennials in body paintings and hennas to support the theme. 

“Tribal was created to highlight how millennials enjoy art in the 21st century, and to make a donation to an organization that embraces creativity and culture- Jamaica Youth Empowerment through Culture, Arts and Nationalism (JAYECAN),” fund raising director of Tribal, Lauren Campbell explained.

To help make the night even more interesting, Tribal invited Simru Henna by Rebecca Rowe to create masterpieces and Kimberly Senior from Pandora Day Spa to introduce Jamaica’s first oxygen bar.

With guest DJs, Jai and Khalid from Trinidad, performances by Prime Time and Avante, and a spectacular fashion show featuring Kittana Smith and Celia Williams, students were in a feel-good vibe. Ending the night with a bang was DJ Heavy D who had the crowd raving.
