CCI Fellowships

The Caribbean Cultural Institute (CCI) Fellowship program fosters art projects and research that advance Caribbean art and scholarship. Through a series of research and artistic fellowships, the initiative cultivates new ideas that challenge traditional conceptions of Caribbean art, generates innovative study on the region, and reflects upon the contemporary state of Caribbean art and thought. This program is for artists, cultural practitioners, and scholars from the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora whose projects would benefit from access to PAMM’s institutional resources. 

In 2022, the CCI will provide two fellowships: the CCI Artist Fellowship and the CCI Research Fellowship. Both programs will take place between October 2022 and February 2023. The Artist Fellowship invites an artist to live and work in Miami for up to two months, while the Research Fellowship provides an opportunity to research PAMM’s Caribbean Art Collection.
