Uniarte 6+ is an open call for all Caribbean artists, curators, writers, cultural producers from the 6 Dutch Caribbean islands and the wider Caribbean region. We are excited to see what the emerging, mid career or the established artists from the region have to offer so that we, among other things, can enlarge the digital visibility of creatives living in the Dutch Caribbean and on the other Caribbean islands.
While the world is slowly opening back up and recovering from the pandemic, our souls are longing for some creative expression, beautiful color and meaningful art. That’s why Uniarte wants to shed some light on our Caribbean creatives and the artistic development in our region.
Our purpose is to:
– Get to know more about contemporary artists that are under represented;
– Introduce new and talented artists from the region;
– Offer the possibility for Artists, Curators and Cultural producers to upgrade their CV, Bio and Artist Statement;
