Award show (annual)
The purpose of the award show is to recognize and award individuals in the Caribbean diaspora who have made significant contributions to music, entertainment, humanitarian efforts sports and other fields over the past years.
This will be an annual event which will be hosted in person, selecting a new location each year including the Caribbean Islands. This will help to showcase the unique culture of each island and give us the opportunity to work collaboratively with many Caribbean brands, creatives, and entertainers.
It is because of the immense talent in the Caribbean diaspora, that we thought it imperative to award and spotlight the incredible talent and achievements of the past, celebrate present day contributors, and provide incentives to keep providing exceptional content, staying true to the rich culture and encourage innovation.
Our team has selected the month of August to host the award show. Thursday, August 31st. Hosted By The Legendary Wyclef Jean!
We identify the importance and significance of Caribbean Heritage Month, and we are certain this will be a unique addition which will be well received by patrons.
The award show will take place in NYC. Kings Theatre, Brooklyn.
Tickets will go on sale February 13th and made available for everyone wanting to participate in the night the celebration.
The event curated by Caribbean people for Caribbean people will also help to break the stigma that persons in the diaspora often fail to boost their own creatives and as such they end up hindering efforts to push the culture to the forefront internationally. With the launch of an event like this with epic production value on an international scale, the Caribbean voices will be given a stage to spark growth in the creative community. Not only will this be a one-of-a-kind experience, but it will be a catalyst for change. It is now time for the artistes, producers, DJs, everyone involved in the industry to try to advance their own. This event will be a large tribute to the culture, and it will also be a universal call for Caribbean people to rally, come out in their numbers to support and inspire greater development of the region on a whole.
