ACTT President, Rubadiri Victor

ACTT President, Rubadiri Victor is a young multi-media artist/scholar and activist uniquely networked amongst generations of creative practitioners in all fields in Trinidad and Tobago. He has worked in most media and has produced noteworthy work in most.

These are some of his writings:
