I deeply admire and respect the Jamaican creative spirit...
My immediate reasons for starting this organisation came out of need. I needed a way to make money that I could enjoy, and back in 2009 I wasn't enjoying what I was doing. My professional experience up to that time was in the Financial Services and I was a partner in an organisation that I had helped to start, that was doing important work, but it didn't make my heart sing. I knew I had to change jobs, so I did.
One of the things that has excited me my entire life has been the creative arts, Literature first and foremost. One of the things I had felt for a long time was that people coming to visit Jamaica missed so much by limiting themselves to the beach. If only they would come to Kingston, go see a play, talk to an writer, go to a concert. So I decided to launch Jamaica Cultural Enterprises, and 10 years later, here we are.
The organisation is meant to be a gateway, especially for those visiting Kingston, to Jamaican culture and experiences. I aim to provide:
Our tours are good value for money and you can rest assured that the money you spend supports Jamaicans, Jamaican businesses, and communities.
Our booking process is easy and painless and is continuously being improved.
