PRESERVING CULTURE & ARTISTRY
FACILITATING COLLABORATION IN COMMUNITIES
CONNECTING ARTISTS WITH RESOURCES
We are a team of creative professionals that seek to build a more inclusive and comprehensive network of resources for the benefit local artists, artistes and craftsman.
The A.R.T. of Bermuda was formed in reaction to increased living expenses and lacking live/ work residences for artistic professionals. In addition, the waning momentum for collaborative cultural spaces after the loss of Chewstick's hub and the proposed Performing Arts Center have left the artistic community without the means to flourish.
We know first hand how difficult it can be to maintain a career as a creative in what is considered the most expensive place in the world.
It's pivotal for any artist to be part of community where they have direct access to collaboration, critique, skill trade and professional development.
We can utilize the arts as a means to revitalize our economy, tourism and society as a whole. This is why we're working to facilitate pursuing careers in the arts; we're tired of starving artist notions and we want to open doors our creatives can thrive in.
The people behind Artistry & Residence Trust:
PLAN OF ACTION
FUNDRAISE AND PARTNER WITH EXISTING LOCAL ENTITIES TO BEGIN BUILDING OUR NETWORK
PURCHASE PROPERTIES AND RESTORE THEM TO WORLD HERITAGE STANDARDS WHERE POSSIBLE
DEVELOP COLLABORATIVE WORKSHOPS AND RESIDENT STUDIOS THAT ARE OPEN TO MEMBERS
FACILITATE LOCAL ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAMS, COLLABORATIONS AND SPONSORSHIPS
FOSTER TRAINING PROGRAMS THAT HELP ARTISANS DEVELOP THIER BRANDING AND SKILLS
MARKET ARTISANS GLOBALLY WITH THE GOAL OF FINANCIAL SECURITY BEYOND OUR SHORES
OPEN OUR SPACES TO THE PUBLIC REGULARLY FOR COMMUNITY EVENTS AND LEARNING INITIATIVES
REPEAT UNTIL EVERY FORM OF ARTISTRY HAS RESOURCES, WORKSHOPS AND RESIDENCIES
Our partners make it possible for us to build a comprehensive network of resources that benefit us all:
