we gatherin 2020 calendar

A Dream Coming to Life:

On November 30th, 2018, Barbados celebrated 52 years of independence with the traditional Independence parade held at Kensington Oval. The newly elected Prime Minister, The Rt Hon. Mia Amor Mottley, in delivering her featured address gave a call to Barbadians living abroad to come home in 2020. Similar to the year of return in Ghana, Prime Minister Mottley invited all Barbadians to come home in 2020 and invest in Barbados. Her invitation was not limited to only Barbadians, but anyone who was born in Barbados, lived in Barbados, visited Barbados, loves Barbados, or has a connection or affiliation with Barbados.

We Gatherin’ Schedule

The festivities will feature a different parish each month and each parish will focus on a specific theme. Barbados has 11 parishes so starting from January to November, one parish will be highlighted, starting in the north of the island in January and move towards the south. This will then be followed by a nationwide celebration in the month of December. There are loads of events in the coming months from a spectrum of categories, see below.

We Gatherin’ Barbados Anthem

We Gatherin’ Anthem is sung by Bajan artists such as Red Plastic Bag, Peter Ram, Alison Hinds, Edwin Yearwood, Lil Rick, Carole George, Marvay, Mole and Lead Pipe. The anthem promotes the initiative while inviting Bajans abroad to come back home
