The Movement

Kingston Creative is a movement with a mission to make downtown Kingston a vibrant centre for creatives and creative entrepreneurship in the Caribbean. We are developing an arts district and and entrepreneurship hub to provide a vibrant space for creative entrepreneurs to gather and to thrive. By driving entrepreneurship and activities, Downtown will become an art and culture hub. These activities will further encourage infrastructure development and will leverage some of our most underutilized assets: the history and architecture of the old city, the natural beauty of Kingston Harbour and key locations such as the National Gallery and the Ward Theatre. Building creative and cultural infrastructure acts as a catalyst for strengthening local identity and growing the economy, which leads in turn to a more livable inner city, with a demographic of creative, active and engaged citizens.

Background

In 2018 Kingston Creative launched the Meetup; monthly networking events that bring together planners, artists, lawyers, building owners, community development specialists and Downtown residents. We have also started other events Downtown - a monthly Artwalk, a monthly Makers' Market and our upcoming projects include Murals and a Coworking Hub and Incubator for creative entrepreneurs.
