CFAFF launches youth art programme
Caribbean Fashion and Arts Feature Festival recently unveiled their latest initiative, CFAFF Illustrate Arts Impact Initiative to End Violence, which seeks to prepare the next generation of passionate, innovative and skilled young creative practitioners intent on changing the world.
CFAFF Illustrate is a six-month intense program that works to reveal the power of expression to uplift and transform through the use of the arts. The programme offers guided facilitation using principles of communication, connection and transformation through the use of visual arts while holding a safe and non-judgmental space for youth to freely express their creativity and share experiences.
The programme is open to interested participants between the ages of 15 and 25 from East Trinidad (Toco to Tunapuna).
Participants must have an affinity for the visual arts, be interested in a career in the creative sector and internship opportunities. They should also want to play a part in addressing violence against women and girls.
Many of the sessions will intertwine guided visual art projects and include appearances from local professional guest artists and international artists in residence at EASY YARD in Arima working together to produce a group visual art exhibition chronicling their lives, ideas for change and ending violence against women and girls in their lifetimes.
Registration will cost $300 which includes materials. This can be also paid in six equal parts of $50 per month.
Space is limited and only 15 participants can be accommodated. Registration closes March 1 and classes commence on March 3.
