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.
Working Towards a Brighter Future
CFAFF ARTS ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
Making a Difference
CFAFF Arts Enrichment Program offers children and youth aged 8-18 a precious opportunity to develop their unique identities and build skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.
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.
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.
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.
EAST YARD MEMBERSHIP
Fulfil Your Creative Aspirations
Our home base EAST YARD, managed by Caribbean Fashion & Arts Feature Festival (CFAFF) is quickly becoming known as East Trinidad’s premier community arts hub and is in the process of implementing our first membership program.
With our mandate to work with youth and persons over age 60, the goal is to provide support to these two groups in particular (but not excluding the general public) in their creative endeavours through our membership program.
