    • Carnival!
      • There are many versions of Carnival around the world
      • But all of them have the same origins:
      • ‘ Carne Vale’
          • - goodbye to meat!!
          • Do you know what this refers to?
      • ‘ Carnevale’, an Italian Catholic costume festival before the first day of Lent.
      • The Caribbean carnival is also a paradigm of many African festivals whose purpose is to cleanse, renew, and revive the community by parading through villages in costumes and masks.
      • These photographs show the Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago, the ‘home’ of carnival as we think of it.
    • Carnival!
      • There are other versions of carnival…….
      • Perhaps the most famous is the Venice Carnival which takes place during the week before Lent………
    •  
    • Carnival!
      • In the Middle Ages, the Venice carnival was a magical time for everyone and involved the whole city.
      • The city was crowded with revellers by day and lit up at night as the people enjoyed themselves at parties, shows and musical events.
      • The Venetians wore their masks and their fabulous costumes.
    • Carnival!
      • As with other carnivals throughout the world and across the ages, personal identity, sex and social class were forgotten; all that mattered was taking part in the great illusion of the Carnival.
