CFAFF ARTS ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
Currently funded by the JB Fernandes Trust, the primarily East Trinidad based six month program focuses on arts education at its core and includes programming in gender based violence prevention and anti-bullying to end with a large scale community-based art and mural beautification project/s that speak to the social issues covered in the program. Experienced artists together with past program graduates teach the basic skills of their discipline, provide its historical context, and help participants develop final exhibition and mural projects.
The program is currently being executed in three communities:
Longdenville Community Centre, Chaguanas - In collaboration with the Freely Give Foundation, this CFAFF AEP group commenced in August 2019 and has been extended to 40 migrant Venezuelan children.
EAST YARD Community Arts Center, Arima - The home base of CFAFF, this group commenced in September 2019, with 15 East based participants.
Maloney Government Primary School - In collaboration with the Quays Foundation’s Little Fire project this group commences in October 2019, with 30 pupils of the school.
