We bring the warmth of the Caribbean to you!

About DCA

The Dutch Caribbean Association Rotterdam is an association that aims to provide a safe space and community for everyone interested in joining while keeping a focus on the Dutch Caribbean culture.

Upcoming Events

On the 22 of January, together with Caribbean Ancestry Club we are organizing our very first painting workshop, titled The Beauty of the Caribbean. This workshop will provide the perfect opportunity to unleash your inner artist!🎨

This workshop will start with a presentation by an art instructor, who will provide our guests with insights and useful tips regarding painting, art styles, and art techniques. Afterward, you are invited to take part in the group painting session, aiming to capture the multifaceted beauty of the Caribbean.🏝️

In teams of four, you will be co-creating a piece of art, based on shared ideas developed through a discussion on Caribbean identity. This will be done through questions and prompts presented to the groups. This workshop will have a cozy nature, with chill music, snacks, and drinks.🌊

Join us in the evening, where together with CAC the community we’ll have a Caribbean dinner, followed up by a showcase of performances, and end the night with an open mic! The open mic segment provides a great opportunity for you to exhibit your painting and share the creative process behind your artwork with the attendees.🤩
