The National Cultural Foundation
St. James, Barbados
The National Cultural Foundation (NCF) is urging local visual artists to be a part of a new online platform. In order to make the process easier for some, the Foundation is funding the cost of artwork digitisation for 40 artists.
The new website, which is yet to be launched, will be called the
Caribbean Art Express. The project is created in partnership with
Artists Alliance and The Barbados Arts Council who are in the process
of collecting pieces from various artists across the region in order
to give practitioners an alternative avenue of exposure when the site
is officially launched.
In order to be featured on the website, the artists’ work must be digitised through hi-res photography. Being fully aware of the challenges of the recent COVID-19 pandemic which has impacted the creative community, the NCF is committed to helping our island’s artists through the digitisation process.
The intention is for Caribbean Art Express to become a designated platform for Caribbean artists and photographers to showcase their diverse range of work.
If you are a local artist or photographer interested in creating a new revenue stream for your work, and would like to be featured on the website, but need to have your work digitised please contact Business Development Officer, Ramona Grandison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 417-6646.
