The Fresh Milk Art Platform Inc. is a Caribbean non-profit, artist-led, inter-disciplinary organization that supports creatives and promotes wise social, economic, and environmental stewardship through creative engagement with society and by cultivating excellence in the arts.

The idea for Fresh Milk developed over years of conversations with other practicing artists around the need for artistic engagement among contemporary practitioners living and working in Barbados, with an expressed need to strengthen links with the region and the diaspora and shape new relationships globally.

Given the traumatic history of the Caribbean, the region is not always associated with the idea of nurturing. By embodying this notion of nurturing creativity and offering a space that is safe for people to experiment, innovate, gather, talk, think and create, Fresh Milk becomes an act of resistance by moving against this historical grain.

Fresh Milk bridges the divides between creative disciplines, generations of creatives, and all linguistic territories in the region-functioning as a cultural lab, constantly redefining itself. The platform transforms into a gathering space for contemporary creatives who are thirsty to debate ideas and share works through local and international residencies, lectures, screenings, workshops, exhibitions, projects etc.
