FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ATLANTA CARNIVAL EXPERIENCE (A.C.E.) LAUNCHES 2018 THEME AND FOCUSES ON BRINGING UNITY IN THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY
Atlanta, GA: The Atlanta Carnival Experience (A.C.E.) team will launch its 2018 theme entitled ‘Festival of Unity’ on Friday December 1st at Lava Lounge (57 13th St., Atlanta, GA 30309) at 8PM. A.C.E. is a diverse five-day festival weekend spearheaded by International Stephen, representing African & Caribbean Cultures throughout the diaspora. On Friday, patrons can expect an event with a unique and exciting twist that is uncharacteristic of the average Caribbean event. Attendees can look forward to a lively panel discussion headed by top soca artistes Ricardo Dru of Antigua and Barbuda, King Bubba FM of Barbados, Nori Amada of Panama, Cultural Ambassador Giselle the Wassi One and renowned disc jockey International Stephen of Trinidad and Tobago. The panel discussion will be hosted by Austin Thompson of Guyana.
The panel discussion will be focused on the topic of activating unity in the Caribbean community using Carnival as the catalyst. The goal is to open this much needed conversation in the community, and work towards actionable solutions that can be brought to life throughout the year. This concept is closely tied to International Stephen’s vision for the ACE weekend in 2018. He chose the theme ‘Festival of Unity,’ because he ‘saw the need to bring together the diverse and unique cultures of the Caribbean and African diaspora for high quality events during the Carnival season’.
The free, invitation only event, promises to be provocative, engaging and actionable. Patrons can also look forward to the First Fridays after party hosted by DJ Chigga and Marissa of the Authentic Caribbean show on Majic 107.5 FM (one of the biggest urban stations in Atlanta).
