Home About Diaspora-Now

The idea and concept for Diaspora-Now, Inc. has been in formation since 1986. Our primary mission is to increase the awareness and appreciation of Caribbean Culture, through distribution of information and works of art.

To this end we have prepared a catalog of fine arts and crafts, and will coordinate a continuing series of exhibitions & workshops, featuring artists of the Diaspora.

Our intention is to grow into an organization with the necessary outlets to truly make an impact on the wider culture. These outlets will include an art gallery, gift shop and performing arts space. Eventually a periodical publication and teaching center will be added, to complete the cycle of our mission.

Since 1993 Diaspora-now Inc. has produced a series of critically acclaimed art exhibitions highlighting emerging African American, Latin American and Caribbean artists. January 1998 saw the official launch of the Diaspora-now Collection. This eclectic mix of Caribbean Arts and Crafts is tailored to a wide range of tastes and interests. This Collection is brought to you primarily by artists and artisans from the Caribbean island of Barbados.

Another feature of CaFA Fair Barbados 2019 was a presentation of artwork by Barbadian students at Norman Centre Mall in Bridgetown. Hundreds of enthusiastic visitors flowed through the 3 venues and attended our special events.  
Many followed our presentations on social media. We want to thank the artists, presenters, participants, staff and volunteers who made this entire event possible.
A special thank you to our sponsors, supporters, patrons, and everyone who has attended CaFA Fair Barbados over the years. We look forward to our 10th Anniversary in 2020.
