Jamaica's only safe space carnival arts programme that focuses on the cultural art form of Moko Jumbie stilt walking to build confidence while bringing diverse communities together.

Walking Tall Jamaica is a nondiscriminatory space that is open to persons of all backgrounds where everyone is treated as individuals, respected for their unique attributes and not excluded, harassed or bullied in any way, through unconscious bias, stereotypes or unlawful actions.
