Founded in 1996 Diaspora Vibe (DVG) is a multi - disciplinary art space serving as a laboratory for emerging artists of the Caribbean Diaspora, Latin America and other artists of color, providing them with a contemporary sensibility to explore and experiment with new forms and cultural themes.
Diaspora Vibe's intention is to move forward from the misconceptions and stereotypical images of Caribbean and Latin American artists, while also engaging dialogue and interaction with their work and the viewer. Diaspora Vibe provides a bi-monthly forum for artists to explore issues that define contemporary art on the local, national and international scenes.
Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator is the not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization, with a board of directors, chaired by Barron Channer, and co-chaired by Dr Marva McClean. Our mission is to promote, nurture and cultivate the vision and diverse talent of emerging artists from the Latin and Caribbean Diaspora through the Artists in Residence program, International Cultural Exchanges, community and youth activities that celebrate Miami's rich cultural and social fabric.
