The CCI Fellowship program advances the study of Caribbean art while providing opportunities for exchange and collaboration across the Caribbean region and its diasporic communities. Researchers, curators, artists, and cultural practitioners are invited to Miami to develop work and connect with South Florida’s cultural setting. This program is an opportunity to strengthen Caribbean networks both locally and abroad, encouraging a multilayered and hands-on approach towards knowledge production.  

The CCI Fellowships will launch in the fall of 2020 with a pilot program encouraging art production and research based on the histories of surrealism in the Caribbean and its legacies in contemporary art practices. In 2021, the CCI will expand the program offering four types of fellowships for artists and cultural producers, visiting scholars, local researchers, and a travel grant. The appointed fellows will be selected through an open call process. The application information for the 2021 CCI Fellowship program will be announced in December 2020, with further details about the program available at that time.
