Sustainable Art Communities : Contemporary Creativity and Policy in the Transnational Caribbean, Hardback Book

Sustainable Art Communities : Contemporary Creativity and Policy in the Transnational Caribbean Hardback

Edited by Leon Wainwright, Kitty Zijlmans

Description

This collection sets out a range of perspectives on the challenges that the Caribbean is facing today, showing how the arts hold a crucial role in forging a more sustainable Caribbean community.

It forcefully attests to the view that visual art in particular has a specific contribution to make and that this in turn means striving to foster a sustainable arts community that can contend with an environment of uneven infrastructure, opportunity and public awareness.

Spanning the scholarly, artistic and professional fields of arts and heritage, this book compares two of the Caribbean's key linguistic regions - the Anglophone and the Dutch - to address the themes of global-local relations, capital, patronage, morality, contestation, sustainability and knowledge exchange.

The result is a milestone of collaboration from diverse global settings of the Caribbean and its diaspora, including Jamaica, the Bahamas, Barbados, Suriname, Curacao, the Netherlands, UK, Germany and the US. -- .
