RECAP: ARTT Info Session
—Published on 16th Apr, 2020.
On April 7th 2020, FILMCO hosted our first ever Info Session with specially invited guests from the Artist Registry of Trinidad and Tobago (ARTT). Our Info Sessions will be scheduled to take place periodically, with the aim of inviting partners in various aspects of creative enterprise and administration, to share information on their projects and how they can positively impact film and television industry practitioners.
Streamed live via the FILMCO Facebook page, two knowledgeable representatives of the Ministry of Community Development Culture and the Arts presented a wide-ranging and lively session about the Artist Registry of Trinidad and Tobago. They touched on why the Registry was created; how members of the public can access it; and the benefits of being a part of the Artist Registry. Audiences were able to interact with Nadya and Danielle via the comments section and had all their questions answered.
The Artist Registry of Trinidad and Tobago is a government-funded initiative that helps to facilitate the development of a database of all artists and cultural workers in Trinidad and Tobago with the hopes of aiding with access to increased funding and the optimization of international benefits.
Daniella Carrington has a background in visual arts, arts management and museum studies. At the culture division, she is a core part of the team responsible for the development of the cultural industries. Cultural Support Specialist Nadya Shah is a creative producer and artist who has been involved in various endeavours ranging from public sector consultations and programme implementation and management.
