ART THAT AWAKENS
Following every performance, Conch Shell Productions (CSP) invites artists to discuss their process, and audiences to share their response to the work. CSP also hosts Artist Chats feature Caribbean American and Caribbean Diaspora artists.
Our hope is that these open conversations will help expand awareness of the emerging voices of Caribbean American and Caribbean diaspora artists, inspire diverse audiences to support and demand more plays and films by our community of artists, and encourage Caribbean American and Caribbean diaspora artists to own their unique, authentic voices.
