Turning Interest Into Action
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. 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 made its mark, with recognition by Vogue Italia.
CFAFF has since launched into full community arts enrichment programming to include large scale community mural projects, exhibitions, arts education that introduces children and youth to innovative ideas and visual arts tools for addressing social issues, adult arts programs and in 2017 founded the Arima based EAST YARD Community Arts Centre, which has become a premiere creative hub in East-Trinidad.
The freshly launched FOR COMMON GOOD embraces the pivotal role of the creative arts in shaping the quality of intercultural relations as well as creating a unique platform for artists, audiences, and other stakeholders in the sector to strengthen the overall impact of their own arts for social change programming. The platform will roll out with two programs, namely, FOR COMMON GOOD - Arima x Louisville Exchange; and FOR COMMON GOOD - Youth Arts Enrichment Program.
To raise awareness of the power of the creative arts to foster social change.
To be known as the premiere global platform that showcases the power of the arts to promote social change.
With a vested interest in merging arts, education and social impact, we value innovation in programming, knowledge transfer and cultural exchange.
