CARIBBEAN MARKETPLACE FOR THE ARTS - CARIFESTA XI
The focus of the Caribbean Marketplace for the Arts at CARIFESTA XI was on music (vocalists and instrumentalists) and dance (contemporary and folk). The creation of the “cultural marketplace” within CARIFESTA, is a new activity that is intended to help realize business opportunities for artists.
This was achieved by inviting the managers of international festivals and venues in Europe, North America and the Caribbean to CARIFESTA XI, to observe performances and to network with Caribbean artists from CARICOM Member States and Associate Members. Coaching sessions, business meetings, panel discussions, presentations and performance showcases was organized from 18 - 22 August, 2013 for the benefit of both artists and Arts Presenters.
