Organised by the British Council and presented in partnership with the National Galleries of Scotland, this event brings together leading curators and practitioners from the Caribbean and Scotland to consider some of the concerns and ambitions of the Caribbean’s dynamic visual arts ecology and to explore the region’s developing connections with the visual arts sector in Scotland.

We would be delighted if you would join us for an evening of presentations and round-table discussion, followed by informal networking over drinks.
