ABOUT THE FIFTH ANNUAL
GUYANA FOLK FESTIVAL SYMPOSIUM 2007:
Theme: "Oii" (Origins, Identity, and Influence)

The Fifth Annual Symposium of the Guyana Folk Festival, an event produced and sponsored by Guyana Cultural Association, announces its theme for 2007.
Drawing on the bicentennial of the abolition of the trade in African captives (the Atlantic Slave Trade) and the later political independence from Britain in 1966, the theme is "Oii" (Origins, Identity, and Influence)

In 2006, Ron Lammy's symposium paper introduced the concept of "Oii" and established the focus for this year's Symposium.
In the spirit of our Guyanese collectivity and memory we continue this examination of our place in our extended, and indeed global, community.
And so Oii, how you doing? Oii, you coming to the symposium?
