What We See

Interest in the visual arts in Barbados has grown steadily over the years, evolving during the decade of the 60s, from somewhat of an underground culture to a vibrant artistic community that includes some 12 art galleries.


The advent of the Barbados Community College gave new impetus to the island’s artistic talents. The college’s programmes, along with those of the National Cultural Foundation, private photography workshops and the advent of the digital era, have also led to the dramatic increase in photography enthusiasts.

The Festival offers these practitioners another avenue to showcase their talent and to make meaningful connections.
