The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas: NAGB Newsletter - August 7th, 2020

We are now in the midst of another COVID-19 emergency lockdown, but that doesn't mean that this is a time for boredom. The NAGB newsletter is here to update you on unique online and digital opportunities and entertainment. Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page regularly for free virtual museum tours, fun art activities and other exciting initiatives.

CATAPULT - A Caribbean Arts Grant

Kingston Creative, Fresh Milk, and the American Friends of Jamaica introduce CATAPULT | A Caribbean Arts Grant - a group of six new initiatives supporting Caribbean Creatives.  These funding opportunities will increase the visibility of over 1,000 Caribbean-based artists, creatives and cultural practitioners to global audiences, provide much needed financial support, and develop the creative skills of our artists. Now more than ever in light of COVID-19, it is critical to think about artists having an online presence, valuing the work of Caribbean artists, and enabling their growth.
Applications are now open for the CATAPULT Caribbean Creative Online!
