CATAPULT | Caribbean Creative Online

The Caribbean Creative Online component of CATAPULT invites artists to share a recording of a performance, talk, webinar, workshop or other online activity on the platform of their choice. The goal is to increase artists’ visibility in the online arena, raise their comfort level with performing in the digital space, and support artists financially during the pandemic by allowing them to earn from online activities.

The programme targets individuals exploring the critical key themes of culture, human rights, gender, LGBTQIA+ and climate justice which are so relevant to the region. Each of the 100 artists selected from across the English, French, Spanish and Dutch speaking Caribbean will receive a grant of $500 USD.

Works chosen will be posted on the CATAPULT online platforms, promoted on social media and where possible, published by local media partners.
