Caribbean InTransit


About Us

The concept of Caribbean Intransit is to provide a creative ‘meeting place’ for Caribbean artists to share their thought provoking ideas and works within a community of cultural producers, students, scholars, activists and entrepreneurs. The word ‘InTransit’ signifes the historical and contemporary global movement of Caribbean peoples and the opportunities for becoming that this movement offers. Caribbean InTransit’s approach to the exploration of Caribbean arts and culture is not insular thus it incorporates artistic practices and beliefs external to the Caribbean. Licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, Caribbean InTransit is an open access academic journal with a rigorous blind peer review process. Submissions of essays, artworks, poetry as well as other art forms in English, French and Spanish are welcomed.

Caribbean InTransit is a new civil society animal!

In 1996, we began as a corporately sponsored exhibition of ten emerging artists in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and grew into a space hosting classes, conversations, and a series of art and jazz events. Today, Caribbean InTransit is a critical Meeting Place for social
change through creativity and a showcase for Caribbean Creatives in
the visual, culinary, performing and literary arts and architecture.

As a site of learning, our programming includes a bi-annual, open access,
peer-reviewed journal, a newsletter, a panel series, a roving arts festival and
an Arts creative entrepreneurship series targeting at-risk youth, and persons living with HIV/Aids. Our rigorous, academic Arts Journal is multi-lingual and open access.

We work with a community of scholars, cultural producers, students, entrepreneurs, activists, policy makers and businesses to cultivate a union between entrepreneurship and artistry, and create conversations that are important to the forward movement of the Caribbean and the Diaspora.

We achieve our goals through strategic partnerships and collaborations. To date, we have partnered with departments at the University of the West Indies, Rutgers University, University of Trinidad & Tobago, George Mason University and American University, the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, the Inter-American Development Bank, the National ArtGallery of Jamaica, the Art Museum of the Americas (OAS), the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago, Ministry of Planning, Trinidad & Tobago, the Ministry of Community Development and Culture, Trinidad and Tobago and numerous non-profit organizations and enterprising others.
