This touring research and art exhibition is part of a Leverhulme Trust-funded project entitled Caribbean In/Securities: Creativity and Negotiation in the Caribbean (CARISCC).
CARISCC is an international and interdisciplinary research network of seven leading universities in Caribbean Studies, namely Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow and Dundee in the UK, The University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Brock University in Canada, Rutgers University in the USA, and the University of the West Indies (Mona) in Jamaica, Caribbean.
The network explores the interconnections and everyday negotiations between securities and insecurities in relation to precariousness and creativity. This digital exhibition reflects such intellectual concerns and how they relate to the Caribbean region. The focus is on how Caribbean people deploy their creative energy to live with the everyday effects of poverty, inequality and violence, while also generating globally influential creativity in the arts. The exhibition includes the launch of a new sculptural work by commissioned artist Sonia E. Barrett and photographic works by Sireita Mullings.
