ABOUT

Our Roots

Caribbean Fashion & Arts Feature Festival (CFAFF) was incorporated in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in 2016, as an NGO to foster more regional collaboration, highlight work being done in the fashion and art industries, create more opportunities for event tourism and to contribute to the current roster of festivals in the Caribbean.


With the Caribbean being one of the only regions that did not yet have a Fashion Film and Arts Festival of its own, CFAFF’s arrival in 2016 was timely and a success straight out of the gate, with recognition by Vogue Italia.

CFAFF X 3E CULTURAL IMMERSION

Connecting the World

Cultural immersion trips give travelers experiences only locals normally have access to. This cultural immersion experience in the Borough of Arima in Trinidad combines the best parts of travel, academics, and social impact. With the growing popularity of 'slow' travel, where people spend weeks, or months, getting to know what daily life is like in a new locale, it's no wonder that cultural immersion experiences, which give participants the chance to have a deeper experience of the country they visit, are in demand.

 

OUR PROJECTS

Collaborative & Innovative

EAST YARD COMMUNITY ARTS CENTRE

Transformed from an unused backyard and small indoor spaces, in two years, EAST YARD has become  the central hub of East Trinidad's cultural scene. Located on Prince Street in Arima, EAST YARD is managed by CFAFF.

COMMUNITY MURALS

Strengthening civic identity is crucial to the achievement of our mission. We have thus chosen to utilize large scale murals in communities with a message of non-violence to create a tangible sense of place, a sense of pride, and destination, resulting in increased foot traffic while adding color, vibrancy, and character to the urban environments we work in. These murals contrast the negative mental health effects of concrete and asphalt, and have an overall effect of beautification.
