On February 14th, EAST YARD was transformed into a celebration of eroticism and sensuality!
Dominic Thomas, The Creative Associate, launched EAST YARD's inaugural Erotic Arts Festival, kicking off the event with a grown and sexy art exhibition by a collection of local artists
The exhibition ran throughout the week and attracted visitors from near and far, including His Worship, Mayor of Arima, Mr. Cagney Casimire. After taking in the sights, and getting over the shock, His Worship sat to chat with us about his and the Borough Corporation's vision for the arts in Arima.
The festival closed with the Look Fashion Showcase on Sunday 28th. Local designers Adlaw Designs, 'Asa Market, Omi's Works, Deson Ayindé and Commess graced the runway with sexy, flirty, erotic wear.

John Roberts is an architectural designer, interior designer, artist and engineer from Arima. You may recognise him as the jolly looking fellow that rides through the streets of Arima on the most eye-catching contraption you’ll probably see. It’s a recumbent trike, and it isn't new technology but he has certainly made it his trademark. The vehicle consists of a reclined chair, three wheels, and pedals, and John can be seen cruising through Arima on a cool evening.

Anyone looking to contact John for his services, including recumbent trikes, can reach him at 318-1019 or visit him at Maurice Ave (look for the Computer Tech and Building Plans sign)


On February 12th, the Arima Borough Corporation hosted a Carnival Showcase at EAST YARD. His Worship, Mayor of Arima, Mr. Cagney Casimire opened the event and there were steelpan performances, traditional mas characters, spoken word, musical bands and a special guest performance by soca sensation, Preedy.
