iRebel: Visual Arts production company – Belair, St. Vincent
iRebel‘s stated purpose is to contribute to the social and cultural development by promoting regional collaboration among Caribbean nations on Creative Industry projects. The organization’s primary intentions involves the furthering of regional integration,improvements of cultural development and preservation and the establishment of a sustainable Creative arts industry.
These objectives have been derived from the realization of a significant sensibility, that is missing from the collective identity of Caribbean people. Growing up on a Caribbean island, has had a number major disadvantages, including insulation by the media, because of the little emphasis placed on the production of local content. This has made it difficult to accept and identify with cultural practices and regional role models for our youth to emulate. Television is one of the most efficient means of cultural exportation, if all we see such a high concentration American and European shows, then what will be the future of our regions identity.
