Tuesday, May 6, 2008 – A Day In The Life…


This project by the artist Ingrid Persaud aims to record an ordinary day, Tuesday May 6 2008, in the life of ordinary people in Barbados.

If you are in Barbados on May 6, 2008,  all you do is keep a diary of your day, between 600 -1000 words, and email it to her.

It will function as a time capsule capturing for history what normal people did on that very normal day – what they wore, what they ate, where they went, what transport they used – just the stuff of a normal day. It is not about recording extraordinary events.

The records will ultimately be available online for all to share.

Keep a record of the day and send to:


You can email it anytime between 6 and 9 may 2008.

Please tell your family, colleagues and friends.

    These guys have been so pro-american over the last few weeks, even though there is an elephant in the room… I am prepared to be part of the campaign. Let’s have some fun y’all…
