Fresh Milk’s 2019 in Review

Thank you for your continued support of Fresh Milk!

At the Fresh Milk Art Platform, we believe in the visual arts and its capacity to empower young artists and bring the Caribbean closer together. Through our local, regional and international programming, we have witnessed the benefit of investing in the arts, a sector that is increasingly vital now more than ever before.

With your valuable support, we will continue to contribute to the professional development of visual artists in Barbados, the Caribbean and its diaspora through our streamlined programming in 2020. While hosting fewer artists on site at Fresh Milk, this year’s residency focus will be on Caribbean Linked – a regional residency uniting artists from all linguistic territories in the region. We’ll also be fostering new international residency opportunities for Caribbean-based professionals.

A special focus for Barbados is the We Gatherin’ project and Fresh Milk is keen to participate to this unique event. If you’d like to work with us to commission new work by local artists for the 2020 Fresh Stops project or support new work for the Fresh Milk Art Board,

The Fresh Milk Team offers warm thanks and deep gratitude,
and invites you to reflect on 2019 with us in our annual
year in review newsletter!

Fresh Milk’s 2018 Year in Review

Thank you for your continued support of Fresh Milk.

We recognise that the creative landscape across Barbados and the Caribbean has transformed in recent years, bringing with it new opportunities, challenges and developments.

We have decided to take 2019 to review our programming to consider how best we can serve the local, regional and international contemporary arts community in the future. We wish to remain as relevant and as constructive as we have been over the past seven years.

Fresh Milk remains open to potential partnerships while maintaining its commitment to Caribbean LinkedTilting Axis and Transoceanic Visual Exchange. We are considering a reduced number of residencies per year, with a dedicated concentration on the Colleen Lewis Reading Room as a critical resource for the residency programme. 

For now, we invite you to reflect on 2018 with us in
our annual year in review newsletter
