The Caribbean Digital Virtual Artist's Residency

As part of the CDSC, the Caribbean Digital Virtual Artist's Residency program will fund an artist per year for a residency tied to The Caribbean Digital conference. The residency program, coordinated by prof. Kelly Baker Josephs in partnership with the art collective Alice Yard, offers a cash stipend to fund six months of part-time research, creative work, and mentorship for emerging digital artists in the Caribbean.

Artist Marinna Shareef from Trinidad and Tobago will be the TCD's inaugural Virtual Artist's Residency. Shareef is an early-career artist who graduated in 2019 with a BA in visual art from the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine. Read more about the TCD Artist Residency
