Fresh Milk announces the selection of contemporary creatives taking part in its 2013 Local Residency Programme in Barbados.
The residency programme was first launched in 2012, beginning with a short but successful 5 day local residency in March, and has since included projects with artists who have been based abroad, visiting from overseas and from other Caribbean islands. The latest call for proposals was once again for local participants, and five artists working in a variety of media were selected for the available residency slots.
The creatives are: visual artist and animator Versia Harris; photographer Mark King; playwright and actor Matthew ‘Kupakwashe’ Murrell; and filmmaker Cabral ‘LARC’ Trotman, who will be collaborating with spoken word artist Adrian Green.
The dates of these four-week long residencies are to be announced. The programme kicks off with Versia Harris, who is in residence from February 25th – March 22nd prior to embarking on her international residency at the Vermont Studio Center, USA in late March.
