Changing Communities through Culture’ is the guiding statement of The Idakeda Group.
Formed in 1988, the IDAKEDA Group develops programs designed to impact Trinidad and Tobago youth audiences, NGOS and CBOs, specializes in Cultural, Corporate Event Management, Training in PR and manages and promotes the artistic works of performance poet author Eintou Pearl Springer.
We are the producers of critically acclaimed plays such as ‘Baby Doll Meets Midnight Robber’, ‘I Hyarima’ and ‘Kambule’, all written and directed by national cultural icon, Eintou Pearl Springer.
In 2016, we established our non-profit and charitable arm, the Indigenous Creative Arts Network – ICAN. ICAN is dedicated to furthering the education, self-esteem and marketability of young people through the culture, heritage and arts of Trinidad and Tobago. We have developed our own cultural techniques to conduct Interventions for vulnerable youth and communities, as well as to deliver Training Programmes. These programmes are made available to the corporate sector, non-governmental organisations, community based groups and government institutions.
