Last week saw the launch of Kingston On The Edge (KOTE), an arts festival where the capital's artists take over the city. For the third year running, activities have been planned across the city in a programme with exhibitions, musical events, theatre and dance performaces and social community projects, and film, that has kept followers enthralled. Each year the events program has grown and it's clear that KOTE is set to become an annual event.

On Saturday we joined Red Rubber Band artists who were painting a wall near Gully Side, National Heroes Circle. Then we were downtown again on Sunday, this time visiting the Shaare Shalom Synagogue on Duke St. for a string concert by the Pimento Players and a bonus performance from the Polish Max Klezmar band who play a form of jazz with jewish influences. Great stuff!
