Fresh Milk is pleased to share what we got up to over the course of 2021 with you all. While the number of activities was limited once again due to the pandemic, we are still pleased to have had the opportunity to collaborate with amazing partners locally, and in and out of the region. Like everyone else, we have also had to consider how to maintain meaningful engagement in the virtual world.
See our full newsletter to learn more about the work we have done, including: three public art interventions funded by the National Cultural Foundation Barbados; co-hosting a virtual edition of Caribbean Linked VI with our longstanding partners Ateliers ‘89 and ARC Magazine; launching the fourth edition of Transoceanic Visual Exchange in collaboration with Costa Rica based entity TEOR/éTica; continuing our engagement with CONTESTED DESIRES – an ongoing partnership with artist initiatives in the UK, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus and Italy; and facilitating the most recent Tilting Axis Fellowship in partnership with Het Nieuwe Instituut in the Netherlands.
We’re delighted to begin 2022 with the launch of our Open Call in partnership with the Healing Arts Initiative, the Future Centre Trust and Environ Ltd (Adopt A Stop Barbados). We welcome proposals by Barbadian-based contemporary artists for the design of new works to be incorporated into one rain shelter and two benches for installation on the Barbados Trailway Project.
Deadline for submissions: March 19th, 2022
