Transcultural has launched a call for applications which will select up to eight young entrepreneurs, with innovative projects in their early stage of development, from the three linguistic areas covered by the Programme (English-, French- and the Spanish-speaking Caribbean) who will be able to participate in the event in Kingston.
- Young entrepreneurs between 18 and 35 years.
- Young entrepreneurs who are citizens and permanent residents of any of the 17 Caribbean countries within the Transcultural Programme´s geographic scope: Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad, and Tobago.

The creative economy is one of the most dynamic sectors with a huge potential for socio-economic development. The Caribbean region, with its multiplicity of traditions, languages and historical links, is in a privileged position to tap this potential. The UNESCO Transcultura Programme harnesses this diversity to promote integration and cooperation in the Caribbean and the European Union through culture and creativity.
The UNESCO Programme Transcultura: Integrating Cuba, the Caribbean and the European Union through Culture and Creativity, funded by the European Union, hosts the event “IncYOUTHbator: boosting youth’s creative potential for a sustainable future”, which will take place in Kingston, Jamaica, from 29 to 30 June 2022. This meeting will aim at strengthening the entrepreneurial skills of young professionals from the cultural and creative industries in the Caribbean through knowledge exchange and networking among peers and experts from the region and the European Union.
