Dance Caribbean COLLECTIVE, moving to its 5th year, launches a new award program to support Caribbean artists and increase cultural production in Caribbean dance in New York City. Candace Thompson-Zachery, The Founding Director, an established Trinidadian dancer and cultural producer laments that 'support and access to mentorship to sustain Caribbean cultural practices often gets left to happenstance. We want our cultural leaders to have what they need to inspire and educate audiences, and to thrive as individuals.’
