CaFA Fair Barbados 2014 will be held March 12 - 16, 2014 at its fabulous new location in Barbados...the Spirit Bond building in the heart of historic Bridgetown, Barbados!
On October 24, 2013, CaFA Fair in association with the International Communications Association & Dwyer Cultural Center in Harlem, NYC launched “Contemporary Caribbean Art: Selections from CaFA Fair Barbados” with the presentation of the 2013 World Harmony Awards to six distinguished individuals and organizations who have contributed to World Peace. The exhibition features 12 artists of Caribbean ancestry who have been associated with CaFA Fair Barbados or have been interviewed for the documentary film, “Plight of The Caribbean Artist”, by Guyanese American director Earl Holder. The film was screened on November 2 together with a ‘meet and greet’ with the director and participating artists. The panel discussion, "Examining the Caribbean Presence in Harlem" was held on Saturday, November 23, and a presentation by internationally renowned Barbadian performance poet Aja was held on Saturday, December 6. The exhibition, which was scheduled to close on December 6 has now been extended to January 31, 2014.
