The options for artists in the Caribbean have steadily been increasing in the last few years. In Trinidad & Tobago, Alice Yard has become increasingly more active in the region with its 24 hour invitational residency. The Popup Studios in Bahamas also has become known for its Drawing Residency. In Jamaica, NLS has recently invited several socially engaged photographers to participate in their own residency programme. Fresh Milk Barbados, has now launched its own international artists residency.
Fresh Milk Barabados is a team of creatives including an art historian and a writer who are interested in political and social engagement via the Arts. The residency can accommodate two artists or writers simultaneously. This works well with the option to collaborate with local artists or amongst artists in residence. The space appears to be an idyllic island setting of wood floored studios situated under shade-giving trees. There are several facilities also included such as use of the on-site reading room and wireless internet access.
To apply you need to fill out their application form, attach references and a portfolio. Find out more by visiting the link below for more details on residency costs and to make contact.
