Website launch for ‘creatives’

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Artists and performers have been given a new way to promote their work.

The Creative Catalogue, at www.creatives.bm, will allow artists, performers, musicians and designers to create free online public profiles.

The site, set up by the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs, was unveiled yesterday at a home-grown talent showcase at the Blue Waters Anglers Club on East Broadway.

Lovitta Foggo, the Minister of Labour, Community Affairs and Sport, said: “All month long we've been celebrating Heritage Month and Bermudian excellence. We couldn't think of a more appropriate time to launch this Bermudian talent-focused website.

“We are looking to create supportive spaces for the cultural and creative community in Bermuda so we have designed a unified platform aimed at bringing together local creatives so they can represent themselves.

“The site is free for the artists who wish to sign up and we believe that this tool in some small way will help develop and uplift Bermudian national pride.”

The site will also include a search function for several creative categories and enable the viewer to see who is available for hire. Some of the artists who will be featured on the site include Wendell “Shine” Hayward, Imari, Live Wires, Mugzydancer, Brixx and Alan Smith.

Ms Foggo said she also wanted to promote “less established creatives, who are considered younger Bermudians doing unique and big things in small pockets across our community”.

She added: “Ultimately, we want to get creatives in a space to mingle and network with each other.”

Anyone interested in signing up for the site should visit www.creatives.bm
