Despite our individualities as Caribbean nations, climate change affects us all and we live in a region most vulnerable to to its effects — especially with our collective reliance on tourism and/or nature-based economies. Extreme weather events like hurricanes, droughts, and flash floods are more destructive; livelihoods, including those in fisheries and agriculture, are threatened by unpredictable weather patterns; fragile ecosystems like coral reefs struggle to survive continuous coral bleaching events and disease outbreaks; while shoreline communities are forced out of their homes and ways of life due to sea-level rise.
With the launch of this Caribbean-based art competition for legal residents and citizens of CARIFORUM countries, you can add your voice to the global community in this climate crisis. For the winning artist, this is an opportunity to have your work and opinion appreciated by the entire Caribbean and EU community, alongside a cash prize of USD$300.
