Break Away Moments will be hosting a Poster Contest in conjunction with its presentation of Anansy Festival being held on June 9, 2012 at The Princess Theater in Sanford, Fl.
The Anancy Festival is a celebration of Caribbean cultural heritage and designed with particular appeal to children and teenagers curious about the Caribbean. Anancy (or Anansi) is the West African trickster hero of numerous folk tales that are popular across the Caribbean. This clever and conniving character is familiar to millions of people around the world and an appropriate icon for the festival’s blend of Caribbean culture on a platform geared for children and adolescents.
