Canadian Pride. Caribbean Vibe.
"Asserting ourselves. Celebrating our culture"
Who we are
C-CAN was founded by Rhoma Spencer on April 15
2017, when a chosen group of arts practitioners and professionals began to plan and manage the Canada- Caribbean contingent for CARIFESTA XIII. Fast forward to CARIFESTA XIV and after a successful representation of the Caribbean artistic genres in Canada, C-CAN is excited once again to be a contingent at CARIFESTA XIV in Trinidad and Tobago.
C-CAN’s current focus in CARIFESTA is aimed at opening up regional, national and international opportunities to present, promote and effectively market the artistic works of Ontario’s artists and artistic organizations of Caribbean heritage with potential Canada-wide impact.
To instill and explore our cultural capacity through awareness of our creative 'Caribbeing' while remaining anchored to our Canadian reality.
To present and promote the Artistic products of our arts and creative practitioners of Caribbean heritage, whose works are inspired by the art and culture of the Caribbean. From the performing arts and film to multimedia and the culinary arts.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
Presently, we are planning and coordinating the Canada- Caribbean contingent invited to participate at CARIFESTA IV in Trinidad and Tobago from August 16th-25th, 2019. We are feverishly soliciting the financial support of the community, in addition to Corporate and Governmental support.
