CATAPULT Lockdown Virtual Salon

Kingston CreativeFresh Milk and the American Friends of Jamaica | The AFJ introduce CATAPULT | A Caribbean Arts Grant – a group of six new initiatives supporting Caribbean Creatives. These funding opportunities will increase the visibility of over 1,000 Caribbean-based artists, creatives and cultural practitioners to global audiences, provide much needed financial support, and develop the creative skills of our artists. Now more than ever in light of COVID-19, it is critical to think about artists having an online presence, valuing the work of Caribbean artists, and enabling their growth.

The Lockdown Virtual Salon will provide opportunities for 32 cultural practitioners to be supported, each of whom will receive a $500 USD stipend to engage in one live conversation on a staggered basis from August through November 2020. Artists will be selected from the English, French, Spanish and Dutch speaking Caribbean by an independent regional jury. The support offered by the Lockdown Virtual Salon grant is targeted specifically at cultural practitioners without a permanent work affiliation, or whose main or sole source of income is from their creative/artistic output.

Applications are now open for the CATAPULT Lockdown Virtual Salon!
