Mission and History

MISSION

The mission of UniArte is to be an organisation that through artistic projects and meetings shares contemporary artistic practices and activates conversations about the Caribbean context, contributing to the general artistic development and interaction with the public.

VISION

The vision of UniArte is to establish itself in ways that gives visibility to the development of Dutch Caribbean contemporary artistic practices, and to increase its participation in the Caribbean and international art world.

UNIARTE STATEMENT

Space

An artist needs space, a safe space, a “room of one’s own”, a supportive environment to explore, to process, to work, to breathe, to create. Free from judgment, yet open to constructive critique. A space that embraces and understands development through chaos and potential.

Process

Art is a process with ebbs and flows. The development of the artist consists of exploring, failing, succeeding, innovating. The artist needs to be able to face any situation or artwork with an honest and daring approach, regardless of public opinion.

Interaction

An artist needs a space to display their work, accessible to the general public. A chance to meet and interact with their audience. Room for discussion about art in general and the artist’s own work in particular. A space where artistic collaboration can lead to creative explosions, and can have transformative effects. We firmly believe in collaboration between and within all sectors and disciplines.
