The idea and concept for Diaspora-Now, Inc. has been in formation since 1986. Our primary mission is to increase the awareness and appreciation of Caribbean Culture, through distribution of information and works of art.
To this end we have prepared a catalog of fine arts and crafts, and will coordinate a continuing series of exhibitions & workshops, featuring artists of the Diaspora.
Our intention is to grow into an organization with the necessary outlets to truly make an impact on the wider culture. These outlets will include an art gallery, gift shop and performing arts space. Eventually a periodical publication and teaching center will be added, to complete the cycle of our mission.
Since 1993 Diaspora-now Inc. has produced a series of critically acclaimed art exhibitions highlighting emerging African American, Latin American and Caribbean artists. January 1998 saw the official launch of the Diaspora-now Collection. This eclectic mix of Caribbean Arts and Crafts is tailored to a wide range of tastes and interests. This Collection is brought to you primarily by artists and artisans from the Caribbean island of Barbados.
