The mission of Canvas and Cave is to enhance arts and culture on every island we serve, while working under a strong environmental mandate. Barbados has a long and rich history, with a very well established sports and entertainment industry. But the artistic communities are struggling to compete with the cheap craft imports from China that have, over the years, replaced most of the local arts and crafts that were once sold in the markets. Our onsite activities will work to inspire, support and encourage local artists.
Canvas and Cave is designed to be a meeting ground for artists bringing together both international and local talent. Our arts centre will offer art, dance and theatre classes to both guests and local communities. Our free summer camp program for local kids will be designed to inspire creativity.
