The Release Innovation Challenge Community College Tour came to an end on October 29th with their final show at Excelsior Community College. With surprise performances from D’Angel and Shane O, The Release Team rolled out an exceptional concert. Other honourable mentions included Gage, Razor B, G-Whizz, Gaza Kym, Lincoln 3Dot and Trabass to name a few.
The Release visited six of the eight Community Colleges in Jamaica providing them with a free seminar, expo and concert aimed at creating awareness of the importance of being innovative in the field of food, fashion, music and technology. “We wanted to host an event that had strong educational content involved. The tour was successful in speaking to students about the benefits of being innovative, protecting ones Intellectual Property and registering your businesses” said Talisa Taylor, Executive Producer and host of The Release.
In addition to the main concert new comers Social Development Commission (SDC) came on board as an exhibitor on the final day. SDC’s vision states “To be the leading community development agency working within a Jamaican Society where all citizens actively participate in a process and benefits from the resulting good governance, economic prosperity, sustainable environment and social well-being”. Taylor added “We will definitely be approaching SDC about coming onboard for the full tour next year as their contribution was vital in us educating these students”.
The Release will be taking entries for their Innovation Challenge up to December 7, 2018 on their website www.thereleaseja.com. Community College students can visit the website to get the competition guidelines and more.
