The Eastern Vicariate Youth Council (EVYC) hosted its first talent showcase, ‘Breaking My Silence’ on September 26, 2020 at the House of Praise, Upper De Gannes Street, Arima. EVYC leader Justin de Verteuil writes that it was the fitting end to months of preparation, anxiety, and anticipation.
The idea for this project was born out of the Youth Council’s desire to reach out to our young people in the Vicariate. After conferring among ourselves, we all had a common thread running through our requests.
Young people needed an outlet or a space in which to express themselves freely, especially during this time of COVID. What better way for people to express themselves than through the power of the Spoken Word and music? The ‘Breaking My Silence Talent Showcase’ was born.
