My research explores the ways in which Santiagueros create stories about their everyday lived experiences in relation to the Santiago de Cuba Carnival (SdCC) in Eastern Cuba; how these stories can be constituted as memories ‘stored’ and regenerated in the SdCC, both in the imagining and performance of it. I explore notions of embodied archiving through/as the stories Santiagueros tell and I consider the possibilities these acts of storytelling and joymaking offer as moments of visibility and resistance in and from liminal spaces that challenge and disrupt grand narratives. Using original poetry I explore concepts of mobility, migration, joy making and African diaspora identity in the Caribbean.
