We are best known for our involvement in performing arts in Barbados. The Afro-Caribbean themes represented in each choreography, musical arrangement, set design and costume serve to not only entertain but also inform. 

ILF is active in the local and regional Pan African Movement, supporting our brothers and sisters across the diaspora. Through our work we raise awareness of history that is meaningful to Barbadians and people of the African diaspora. These efforts aim to emphasize that unity is vital to the economic and social progress of our people. We are motivated to honour and represent tenets of our ancestry through performing arts and cultural education.
