Creation of 30 ft Cedros Hosay tadjah

The Artists Coalition of Trinidad and Tobago (ACTT) launched The Guild of Masters under the patronage of President Prof George Maxwell Richards with the unveiling of a 30-foot Cedros hosay tadjah at OWTU on Henry Street. The guild is an institution created to rescue disappearing traditional local skill in a period where we’re experiencing the death of our Golden Age generation. The 30-foot tadjah is the first artifact to be re-created. Our idea of the guild is: master elder artisans working with master apprentices re-creating masterworks whilst the entire process is recorded and codified.
