Caribbean Culture and Arts

The Caribbean is awash with culture and arts, including media, literature and music. The theatre arts tradition of the Caribbean is long and varied, and encompasses the festivals and performances of both master and slave classes during slavery. Theatre types include the more formal indigenous “theatre of playwright and entertainer”, to popular theatre-in-education and storytelling theatre. The concept Caribbean theatre continues to be explored in various ways through the work of individuals and organisations in the region. Music surrounds nearly everything in the Caribbean, and with a little planning it is easy to find cultural and music events to go to on your holiday. Caribbean artists are also breaking onto the world art scene, bringing with them a unique vision of the world, based on the bright colours and beautiful cultures of the islands.
