THE ARTS JOURNAL Volume 7 Numbers 1 & 2 (2011)

Review by Nigel Westmaas

Nigel Westmaas is Assistant Professor of Africana Studies

at Hamilton College, a liberal arts University in New York.

Keeping an arts journal (or for that matter any journal) alive and active is a traditionally difficult commission in Guyana. By the standards of journals and periodicals of any kind Timehri, Kyk-Over-al and Kaie are the three way ahead of the rest in terms of durability. Timehri has the record with a century of publication. Kyk-Over-Al, more exclusively cultural in content than Timehri, was started by the British Guiana Writers Association in 1945 and was still being maintained, with the occasional lapse, until the late 1990s. Fifty years plus! A remarkable record by any standard.
