Caribbean in Motion opened for viewing at National Gallery West in October 2016.
This exhibition debuted during FOROMIC, Latin America and the Caribbean’s most important annual event on microfinance and entrepreneurship, which will took place at the Montego Bay Convention Centre from October 24 to 26, 2016. FOROMIC is a space for business and financial innovations, and in particular a platform for microfinance, which has demonstrated that serving low-income households and small businesses is possible, sustainable and profitable. The cultural industries are an important area of focus at FOROMIC. FOROMIC is supported by the IDB and staged in association between the IDB Multilateral Investment Fund and the Jamaican Ministry of Finance and the Public Service.
